Evening of Hope benefits McLeod HOPE Fund for Cancer Treatment
An Evening of Hope to benefit the McLeod Center for Cancer Treatment and Research will take place virtually in the comfort of your own home Sept. 23 at 7 p.m. The presenting sponsor for the McLeod Health Foundation’s 22nd Annual Cancer Benefit is Harbor Freight Tools. Safety and continued health are of utmost importance at McLeod Health. With this in mind, the McLeod Foundation has come up with a creative way to celebrate together while still raising funds for this very important need. Robin Aiken, Chair of the McLeod HOPE Fund Advisory Committee, explains, “While we planned to celebrate An Evening of Hope in person this year, we are thankful for the technology that allows us to hold this special event virtually. During this challenging season of COVID-19, we welcome the public to join us from the comfort of their own home as we celebrate the McLeod Center for Cancer Treatment and Research, our incredible patients and our resilient medical teams.” Each “couple/attendee” will receive one Celebrating HOPE gift bag which includes a special charcuterie board and other delights for you to enjoy before, during and after the performance as well as a specific link to view the online event, “Celebrating HOPE.” Exciting auction items will also be available for bidding beginning Sept. 16-23 at www.mcleodfoundationevents.org. Proceeds from the evening will benefit the HOPE Fund. Gifts made in support of the HOPE Fund (Helping Oncology Patients Everyday) benefit oncology patient support services and provide oncology staff with improved access for immediate assistance needs for their patients. Since its establishment in 2014, the HOPE Fund has helped thousands of patients with needs such as transportation, medications, nutrition and unique personal financial struggles.
