Local Students Showcase Talent For Calverthealth Breast Care Center

On May 20, 2019, Mamma Lucia restaurant hosted the CalvertHealth Foundation Spotlight Series to support the Sheldon E. Goldberg Center for Breast Care. The audience was entertained by top talents from Calvert and Huntingtown high schools and Demetri Bedel, Band Director at Calvert High School. Foundation Board Trustee Dr. Ramona Crowley-Goldberg produced the show which raised more than $3,700 for the Sheldon E. Goldberg Center for Breast Care at CalvertHealth. 

Patrons attend the musical series for variety of reasons; the most prevalent being support of the Sheldon E. Goldberg Center for Breast Care and to experience wonderful entertainment right here in Calvert County. 

Director Ramona Crowley Goldberg remarked, “This is a way to celebrate my late husband’s good work and to embrace my deep love for music and for teaching students. It has been an honor to work with such talented and upstanding high school musicians. Each of them could not be more gracious and selfless with the giving of their time and talents for the benefit of others, and most especially, those who are served by our county’s Breast Center.” 

Proceeds from the Spotlight Music Series help to provide support CalvertHealth’s breast center. The first of its kind in Southern Maryland, The Sheldon E. Goldberg Center for Breast Care gives local women access to an experienced team of breast health experts and the most sophisticated technology available today. In one comfortable and convenient location, our experts provide comprehensive and coordinated care-from outreach and screening to diagnosis, treatment and survivorship. The dedicated space to see and treat patients makes it easy for physicians involved in the management of breast disease (general and plastic surgeons, radiologists and pathologists as well as medical and radiation oncologists) to consult with each other about a patient’s treatment.
