Wouldn’t you know it? The day after the Times philanthropy issue goes to press comes word from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences of a $1 million gift for its Breast Center.
Longtime supporter Stuart Cobb, who was one of the founders of the gift shop at the Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute, was the donor. Her donation will support construction and services to the Breast Center, to be located on the third floor of the cancer institute. The Breast Center is now located in the Outpatient Center.
Cobb is also a charter member of the Cancer Institute Auxiliary, and was its president in 1991-92. She serves on the Cancer Institute Foundation Fund board.
