ROANOKE, VA -

Carilion Clinic's Breast Care Center received two donations on Wednesday night from Smith Mountain Lake area groups.

According to Carilion spokesman Eric Earnhart, organizers of the Smith Mountain Lake Poker Run presented a check for $5,523.  The money will be used to buy equipment for the center.

Second, Earnhart says the Smith Mountain Lake Fraternal Order of Eagles gave a $5,000 check.  That money will be used to give each patient at the center a copy of a comprehensive breast cancer treatment guide.

"We are so thankful for their generosity and kindness," said Carilion Breast Care Center Nurse Specialist Catherine Hagan. "Their gift means so much to us and our patients."
