We chose the beneficiaries based on a combination of organizations that encompass a wide spectrum of breast cancer needs. From research and education to mammograms and treatment, we feel that these groups are providing the services that are needed most.

Smail Auto Group is proud to announce a second successful Pink Ribbon “Smail Auto Group Cares” campaign. During October, Smail Auto Group displayed bright pink ribbons across all of their buildings to raise awareness in support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Smail Auto Group not only made a visual statement, but stood behind their message by donating $100 for every new and used vehicle sold at their dealerships throughout the month of October.
Magee-Womens Research Institute & Foundation; the Westmoreland Frick Hospital Foundation (Excela Square at Norwin); and also Westmoreland Walks, Inc. “Taking Steps Against Breast Cancer” were the beneficiaries of the Smail donation this year.
Kathy Brown and Cheryl McMullen of Westmoreland Walks were thrilled to receive their $7,000 check. Each Spring, Westmoreland Walks, Inc. hosts a Serenity Spa Day. Women battling breast cancer are invited to participate in a day of education, relaxation, inspiration and friendship. Smail Auto Group participated in the walk again this year and raised additional funds from this event. The team was led by Lindsey Smail Schneider and included other Smail employees.
A second check for $23,000 was presented to Art Scully III, Vice President, of the Magee-Womens Research Institute and Foundation. Dr. Ronald R. Johnson, Bud Smail’s son in law, is a breast cancer surgeon at Magee Womens Hospital and recommended this organization. Magee-Womens Research Institute (MWRI) continues to dedicate its clinical research studies and clinical trials to improving the health care of women and infants.
Excela Health is establishing a full-service, certified breast center at Excela Square at Norwin, inside Norwin Hill Shopping Plaza in North Huntingdon. The breast center will provide quick, coordinated care for patients, with access to a primary care physician if a lump is found. In addition, patients will have access to a radiologist will biopsy the lump on site, state-of-the-art digital mammography, a breast surgeon to discuss and perform treatment, and a reconstructive surgeon, should that be necessary. We know that when a woman discovers a lump, the last thing she wants to do is wait for diagnosis and treatment. “Our Breast Center would certainly be one of the best in the region, with a spa-like atmosphere unlike anything Westmoreland County has ever seen”, said Jennifer Miele, Vice President, Excela Health Marketing & Communications. Jennifer, Sherry Gaston, and Carole Blair all were present to accept the $17,000 donation.
