Event will raise funds to support cancer screenings in the community 
The CoxHealth Auxiliary is bringing award-winning humorist Jeanne Robertson to Springfield to raise funds to support cancer screenings in the community. Robertson will hold one performance at 7 p.m., Saturday, June 9, at Evangel Chapel, 1111 N. Glenstone Ave., in Springfield. Tickets are still available.

Jeanne is past president of the National Speakers Association and was the first woman to win NSA's top honor, the Cavett Award. An author of three books on humor, Jeanne has produced six DVD/CD humor programs and can be heard daily on Sirius XM Radio's Laugh USA, the Family Comedy Channel.

Her event in Springfield will support the CoxHealth Auxiliary’s work to fund cancer screenings in the community through the CoxHealth Foundation. Each year, the Missouri Association of Hospital Auxiliaries commits to a cause selected by the organization’s president. The current president, CoxHealth Auxiliary member Margie Beadles, has selected the importance of cancer screenings as the cause hospital auxiliaries around the state will work to support.
