Awesome! That is the only way to describe your support in 2017. The total for the Gala Auction was a wonderful $110,000! Here is what we were able to do with your generous help:
We gave $5,000 to the Summit Health Development Office — $2,500 for Hennessy House, and $2,500 for the Oncology Bridge Fund.
We gave $105,000 to ACS — $15,000 for Hershey Hope Lodge, $15,000 for Philadelphia Hope Lodge, and $75,000 for Franklin County’s Road to Recovery Program, to help patients get treatments they might not otherwise be able to get to because of lack of transportation.
Volunteers at each year’s kick-off meeting are often presented with a number of pamphlets and forms outlining programs sponsored by the ACS, and their continuing efforts in the fight against cancer. Many brochures are available to provide education, and teach self-examination. Contact your local ACS office for copies. If you don’t know how to contact them, visit the ACS Web Site and use their Local ACS Web Pages locator function.
