Cancer Support Community Celebrates Hope at Cocktail Fundraiser

The Greenville Country Club was floating with good feeling on Friday, with hundreds of red balloons bobbing in every room. This year’s 13th annual Red Balloon fundraiser on April 13th for Cancer Support Community of Delaware (CSCDE) was a Cocktails for a Cause event, and several of the 150 guests seemed to enjoy celebrating the theme, with many donning a bright red tie or red dress.

Following the namesake tradition, guests paid tribute to loved ones and friends affected by cancer by sponsoring a red balloon in their honor and memory. The live auction was hosted by professional auctioneer Jeff Hammond and featured jewelry, a 76er’s VIP package, and an opportunity to rent a beautiful home in Bethany. The event was a truly special and personal experience for all and helped raise  $41,000 for CSCDE.

All proceeds benefit programs at Cancer Support Community Delaware.  CSCDE is a statewide nonprofit organization dedicated to providing emotional support services to cancer patients, caregivers and their families. Their no-cost services include support groups, mind/body stress reduction classes and educational workshops.
