Circle of Life 100 Raises $100,000 to Benefit Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas

Encinitas – Pairing fabulous designer shoes with lush wines, the Fifth Annual Circle of Life 100 Celebration: Wine, Women and Shoes event on Sept. 10, 2009, raised $100,000 to benefit women’s diagnostic imaging equipment and technology at Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas.

During the event, Circle of Life 100 honored LaVerne Briggs, supporter of Scripps Encinitas, with the 2009 Distinguished Achievement Award for her dedication and continued support of the nonprofit hospital.

“I think this year’s beneficiary is critical to the health and vitality of women in our community,” says Briggs. “Having the latest diagnostic equipment, right here in Encinitas, may encourage more women to get regular mammograms and enhance the detection of breast cancer at its earliest stages.”
