Benefiting Local Cancer Care at WCA
Broadway Musical & LINKS Charity Greeting Cards

WCA Hospital
Bob Terreberry joins Diane Courtney-Freeman and Lynn Wigren, representing the WCA Center for Imaging & Medical Arts, to promote Terreberry Productions’ May 13th performance of “I Do! I Do!” at the Robert H. Jackson Center. At this benefit concert, a second set of LINKS Charity greeting cards, designed by local artist William Cotter, will be available for sale with all event proceeds supporting the purchase of Digital Mammography.

Jamestown, New York (Wednesday, April 27, 2011)—Many individuals, businesses, and organizations in our community believe it is imperative that residents continue to have access to quality, comprehensive cancer care close to home. For this reason, they support WCA Hospital in its efforts to diagnose cancer and offer the best treatment options through state-of-the-art services and equipment.

This support includes local residents and accomplished thespians, Bob and Irene Terreberry. On Friday, May 13th at 7:30 p.m., Terreberry Productions will present “I Do! I Do!”, a benefit concert in the Theatre of the Robert H. Jackson Center. All proceeds from this event, including a Chinese auction, will support the purchase of Digital Mammography.

Tickets are $15 each and are available now in the WCA Center for Imaging & Medical Arts (664-8301), WCA Office of Development (664-8423), or Viking Trader/Expressive Apparel (386-6043). Tickets are also available at the Viking Trader for additional benefit concerts on May 6th (Corbin Scholarship Fund), May 7th (Zonta Club) & May 14th (St. Timothy’s Honduras Mission).

“I Do! I Do!” is a Broadway musical with lyrics by Tom Jones and music by Harvey Schmidt. This two-character story spans fifty years, from 1895 to 1945, as it focuses on the trials and tribulations, laughters and sorrows, and hopes and disappointments experienced by Agnes and Michael Snow (played by Bob & Irene Terreberry) throughout their marriage.

“Irene and I are excited to be on stage together again,” says Bob Terreberry. “We are giving the show a new twist by presenting it in a concert format which lends itself very nicely. We hope that the community will support our efforts to help some of our favorite local organizations, including WCA Hospital.”

LINKS Charity Greeting Cards

LINKS Charity Greeting Card

William E. Cotter, Falconer resident and retired professor of biological sciences at Jamestown Community College, has been a faithful supporter of local cancer care efforts, particularly LINKS Charity. Utilizing Prismacolor colored pencils, he recently created two original pieces of art now featured on the cover of custom greeting cards. These LINKS Charity greeting cards are now available to the public in the WCA Center for Imaging & Medical Arts and will also be available at the May 13th production of “I Do! I Do!” for a suggested donation of $1 each or $5 for a bundle of six.

Falconer Printing & Design generously donated the printing of these greeting cards so that every dollar donated will go completely to LINKS Charity to support its three-year, $250,000 pledge to help WCA Hospital purchase Digital Mammography.

LINKS Charity Greeting Card

Established in 1991, LINKS Charity is committed to battling cancer and has raised nearly one million dollars to support WCA Hospital’s cancer care program.
