Gifts continue to come in as a result of our record breaking Resources for Hope dinner on Saturday October 21st. I’m delighted to report that we have flown past our budgeted goal of $175,000 and are creeping towards our stretch goal of $200,000! At this time our generous donors have contributed $197,500 for our Patient Assistance Fund and as a result we will be able to once again accept applications for assistance and issue funds within the coming weeks.

The 3rd Annual Resources for Hope supporting Cancer Lifeline’s Patient Assistance Fund (PAF) raised a record breaking $170,000 at the October 15, 2016 gala event at The Ruins.
In spite of the forecast of threatening weather, the festive event took place to a sold-out house and included surprises such as a vodka tasting provided by Ian G. MacNeil and Glass Vodka and mini-auction. Guests received swag bags filled with items from area merchants.
Advisory Board member and cancer survivor, Patricia Giuliani made a heartfelt plea for guests to join her in supporting the PAF and help provide financial awards for those individuals and families impacted by cancer who are experiencing financial hardships.
This year’s moving video featured the Bailey Family who had received a PAF award. The video was produced by Tina Nole, Board Member and Owner of Larj Media.
The event was co-chaired by Advisory Board members, Lynn Behar and Jane Caron.
