Date:4/16/2008

Ceremony Also Celebrates Opening of Hollings Expanded Building

CHARLESTON, S.C., April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- The Medical University of South Carolina's Hollings Cancer Center has dedicated the Edwin and Barbara Pearlstine Healing Garden. The healing garden, designed by Robert Chesnut, was endowed with a $1 million gift from Edwin S. Pearlstine, Jr., in memory of his wife of 40 years, Barbara Langer Pearlstine, who died of cancer in 1997.

"Edwin and Barbara Pearlstine will forever be known in this city and at MUSC as true exemplars of philanthropy," said MUSC President Ray Greenberg, M.D., Ph.D. "We are thankful to Edwin Pearlstine for this incredibly generous gift in memory of Barbara. This garden will provide special comfort to our patients for many years to come."

"It is a privilege to recognize this generous gift from Edwin Pearlstine in memory of his wife, Barbara," said Hollings Cancer Center Director Andrew S. Kraft, M.D. "HCC endeavors every day to provide our patients with the very best in cancer care and therapies. We hope that in the beauty of this garden, they will be able to find an added measure of healing and solace."

Mr. Pearlstine, a Charleston native, has made his mark on the city many times over with his business acumen and philanthropy. Under his leadership, the family business, Pearlstine Distributors, became one of the largest privately-owned businesses in the region. He also is part owner of the South Carolina Stingrays. In 2002, MUSC awarded Mr. Pearlstine the honorary degree of Doctor of Humane Letters; and he is a member of the MUSC Society of 1824 for his gift creating the healing garden.

"I know that patients and their families are going through a terrible ordeal," Edwin S. Pearlstine, Jr., said. "If the Healing Garden can give them some comfort it will be well worth my commitment."
