An Evening of Hope Cancer Benefit

The McLeod Health Foundation’s 20th Annual An Evening of Hope Cancer Benefit underwritten by Wells Fargo will be held on Thursday, September 26, 2019, at the Florence Little Theatre.

Tickets for the event are $100 per person.  Please call the McLeod Foundation at 843-777-2694 to purchase tickets.

All proceeds are directed to the HOPE (Helping Oncology Patients Everyday) Fund. Since its establishment in 2014, donors to the HOPE Fund have helped thousands of patients with needs such as transportation, medications, nutrition and unique personal financial struggles requiring immediate assistance.

At this year’s event, we will share stories of courageous survivors who acknowledge that each day is a gift.

Featured Survivors:  Duane Adams, Jerald Altman, Grace DuBose, Rev. Fred Graham, Dr. Bill Hazelwood, Roddy Huntley, Kimberly Hyman, Danny King, Harry Moran, Burnadene Kelley-Newman, Zenobia Perkins, Lisa Sims, Don Simmons, Tommy Stokes and Melissa Tyner.

These stories will be the foundation for an event that has become both energizing and inspirational for the many dedicated supporters who attend each year. A talented group of performers will also provide entertainment to uplift the spirits and enhance the message of hope.

Performers: Rhodes and Elise Elliott; KFA Dance Company; Burnadene Kelley-Newman, Alexis Kelley McDonald, Rebecca Kelley Holbrooks and Georgie Kelley; Kerri Roberts; Garrett Graham and Michael Lindley; Kevin Miller and Rebecca Thompson.
