2016 Hope Gala Recap

The 2016 Hope Gala was a success with 370 attendees, who helped raise over $288,000 for the William R. Bliss Cancer Center at Mary Greeley. The good work done by the center helped to inspire donors to give generously, with over $128,000 in cash and in-kind gifts made to the auction. Listening to testimonials from patients, doctors and nurses about the personalized care the Cancer Care Navigator Program provides and imagining the impact when it expands to serve more cancer patients motivated donors to give over $63,000 in cash gifts.
