AngioDynamics Sponsors Second Annual St. Jude Gala
Event to Benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital Honors WGNA; Features Performance by Big Sky Country
ALBANY, N.Y., August 21, 2014 - AngioDynamics, (NASDAQ: ANGO), a leading provider of innovative, minimally invasive medical devices for vascular access, surgery, peripheral vascular disease and oncology, will once again host the annual St. Jude Gala starting at 6 p.m. EST on Thursday, August 28, 2014 at the Saratoga National Golf Club. The evening's event will honor country radio station WGNA for their generous support of St. Jude activities. In addition, ALSAC CEO Richard Shadyac, Jr. will be in attendance and will share words of support.
The St. Jude Gala will raise funds for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, which through research and treatment advances cures, as well as the means of prevention, for catastrophic pediatric diseases. Globally, St. Jude is recognized for sharing its research protocols and treating children regardless of a family's ability to pay and is considered by many to be the most trusted charity in the U.S.
"This is our second year in hosting the St. Jude Gala, and we are honored to be able to help them in their noble cause and to recognize WGNA for their dogged support in helping to raise funds for the St. Jude effort," said Joseph M. DeVivo, AngioDynamics President & Chief Executive Officer. "In every child, there is a chance to make the word a better place, and we would be remise if we did not seize on an opportunity to improve our future. As a company, that's our mission. As a society, that's our responsibility."
The evening's entertainment will be highlighted by a performance by modern country music sensation, Big Sky Country, as well as both live and silent auctions.
"Last year's AngioDynamics' inaugural event proved to be the premier gala in the Capital Region supporting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, raising over $180,000," said Laura Pevahouse, St. Jude Regional Director. "Our job could not be possible without the support of organizations like AngioDynamics, along with additional key sponsors like Blue Shield of Northeastern New York, Key Bank and Bond Schoeneck & King, in our ongoing fight against childhood cancer."
