Jack’s Place Rib Cook-Off Raises $500 for the Ann and Carl Myers Cancer Center!

Tuesday, November 24, 2015

Thanks to the Jack’s Place owner Jason Howard, and Rib Cook-Off Organizer Ashley Derrenbacher (an employee of Noyes Health and Jack’s Place), Noyes Health received a $500 donation for the Ann and Carl Myers Cancer Center.

Jack’s Place first Rib Cook-Off was held Sunday, November 22 outside the restaurant on Main Street Dansville. Despite the cold temperatures the event drew a crowd who not only had an opportunity to enjoy the ribs but also contribute to a good cause. Kyle & Matt Tracy received the first place award and Jason Howard took second place. Judges for this year’s contest were: Samantha Hendley, Justine Fox, Daniel Howard and Patrick Flaherty.

“First and second place winners, along with the 50/50 raffle winner all returned their winnings to the Cancer Center donation.” said Ashley Derrenbacher, organizer of the event. “It’s important to have social activities like this in Dansville for individuals and families and to be able to give back to the community at the same time. The Ann and Carl Myers Cancer Center Project will impact so many people in the area.”

“We are always excited and honored when local businesses look for creative ways to support the projects at Noyes Health.” said Cynthia Oswald, director of Public Relations and the Foundation. “This is an example of Small Town at its finest.”

The Ann and Carl Myers Cancer Center project, a collaboration of Wilmot Cancer institute, Jones Memorial Hospital and Noyes Health is unique in our region and comes at a time when health systems across the country are forging relationships to ensure specialty services while improving quality. Information on the project or how to make a donation is available on the Noyes Health website or by calling Kellie Sylvester at 585-335-4212.
