An Evening of Hope Cancer Benefit

Purchase Tickets

The date for this year’s event is Thursday, September 21 at the Francis Marion University’s Performing Arts Center.  A strolling dinner and cocktail hour will begin at 6:00 followed by our stories of hope and lively entertainment.

Featured Survivors:
Sarah Duby
Leigh Anna Driggers
Sharmeika McDuffie
Stuart Snow
Rebekka Taylor

You will be inspired by courageous survivors who acknowledge that each day is a gift. They, along with others who support the HOPE Fund, recognize how charitable giving provides many of the services that go along with excellent medical care.

In addition, the fun will continue as Fran Coleman and The Emerald Empire Band perform along with surprise “celebrity” guests.

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 challenges requiring immediate assistance.
