An Evening of Hope is Back!

We are excited to be able gather in person once again for this event!  This year's event is more important than ever as the American Cancer Society has been hit hard by the pandemic, suffering a loss of over $200M nationally to date.  At this time, 50% of the research funding is at risk.  That translates into lost progress on improved diagnosis strategies and the development of new or improved lifesaving treatments.  Of all that has had to stop during COVID, the flow of patients being diagnosed with cancer has not.  Many have faced a delay in necessary diagnostic testing and treatment.  What a frightening time to be a patient, compounded by the critical need for donor dollars.


All proceeds from An Evening of Hope benefit the American Cancer Society and will provide HOPE to so many who are battling cancer in our community.  Thank you for your time and for your generosity!
