Aurora Memorial Hospital of Burlington has a strong history of providing leading cancer care in the Burlington area. That’s why it’s leading the way in an effort to build a brand new state-of-the-art cancer center, to be located in Burlington.
You can support this effort by attending the 12th annual Crystal Ball on February 7, 2015. This celebration will feature both a live and silent auction as well as gourmet dining, a Bling Raffle and dancing. Proceeds from the evening will go directly toward this cancer center campaign.
In addition to helping cancer patients, you can also join us in honoring some special people who mean a great deal to the Burlington community.
Thomas Niccolai, MD, is the Honorary Chairperson for the event. Dr. Niccolai is an orthopedic surgeon who cares for patients at both hospitals. Dr. Niccolai says he enjoys treating patients of all ages and giving them back some of their mobility, “I like doing reconstructive operations; taking patients that have significantly painful joints and being able to make them much more functional and hopefully pain free.”
A special Community Leadership Award is being given to brothers Dennis and David Lynch for their hard work and support of the Burlington community.
Dennis Lynch is an attorney at Lloyd, Phenicie, Lynch, & Kelly, S.C . “As an attorney, I see health care in a community as critical in economic purposes in terms of business development, families relocating, and so on. And Aurora has a presence, is expanding that presence and that is an affirmation of all that is good in Burlington,” Dennis says.
His older brother David Lynch is the owner of several car dealerships in Burlington. Both David and Dennis have supported the hospital in Burlington for decades. “The heart of Burlington is its hospital. It was built by the community itself, with little outside money. It’s very special to Burlington, our hospital,” David says.
