Denim & Diamonds

Newman Regional Health is gearing up to begin our 14th Annual Denim & Diamonds fundraising season, directly supporting local quality healthcare for everyone. The financial support of sponsors and participants allow Newman Regional Health to purchase state-of-the art technology and provide new services for the treatment of patients in and around Lyon County. Our 2022 season saw a record-breaking show of support, bringing in over $203,000! For many, contributing is an opportunity to directly invest in the health of our community, benefiting their own family, friends, employees, and customers.

During the next few months Newman Regional Health is inviting our sponsors and community to several exciting events, including our Inaugural Golf Tournament set for May 5, 2023. We look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones during each of our pre-events leading up to the culmination celebration at our Denim & Diamonds Gala on August 4th, 2023, in the Memorial Union Webb Lecture Hall on Emporia State University’s campus. Please plan on joining us for Emporia’s most anticipated evening with lively auctions, entertainment and friends.

Proceeds for this year’s season are designated towards the purchase of a new stereotactic mammography device. Stereotactic mammography pinpoints the exact location of a breast mass by using computer and digital X-rays taken from two different angles. Using these computer coordinates, the surgeon inserts the needle through the skin, advances it into the lesion and removes tissue samples. Stereotactic core biopsy was developed as an alternative to surgical biopsy. It is a less invasive way to obtain the tissue samples needed for diagnosis. This procedure requires less recovery time than does a surgical biopsy, and there is no significant scarring to the breast.
