The Cures for the Colors Gala and Reverse Raffle, happening this Saturday, is sold out. Attendees are in for an exciting evening, including a photo booth, music from 581 South, a 50/50 raffle in addition to the reverse raffle, and more. However, the Gala is more than just a fun night; it is a chance to show support for patients in Wayne County who are battling cancer. All the proceeds from the event will support Southeastern Cancer Care’s grant program that helps cancer patients with basic living necessities while they are undergoing cancer treatment.
The event is at the Maxwell Center.
Emma Barnes, Community Development Coordinator with Southeastern Cancer Care, said, “This is going to be an amazing event. We have sold over 250 tickets and have been blown away by how excited the community is about this event. Thanks to our generous community sponsors, the cost of the event has been covered. All the money raised at the Gala will go to helping patients in need. Guests can expect a lot of fun, laughter, and maybe even a few tears as they learn how much their support makes a difference to those fighting the battle of their life.”
Southeastern Cancer Care (SCC) was founded in 2011 by the Southeastern Medical Oncology Center doctors. They saw firsthand the need to support cancer patients financially as they battled their cancer diagnosis. SCC raises funds so that patients do not have to choose between treatment and basic living essentials. Southeastern Cancer Care is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to providing gas gift cards and grocery gift cards, as well as, helping with utility bills and oncology prescriptions. SCC is proud to say that 100% of the funds raised go directly into the pockets of cancer patients and their families.
Southeastern Cancer Care runs solely off monetary donations and our volunteers’ time and resources.
