Volunteer-Run Gala to Help Cancer Survivors
Local Nonprofit A Message of Hope Cancer Fund, Inc. is scheduled to host the 8th annual gala fundraising event on May 2 at the Gaithersburg Hilton.
This year’s theme is “All That Glitters is HOPE.”
The event will also feature dinner, music, silent and live auction, and dancing until midnight.
According to a press release, A Message of Hope was founded in 2008 by Meredith McNerney- a young cancer survivor who launched the fund when her family and friends helped her to organize the first gala, in celebration of her birthday and one year after she was diagnosed with Merkel Cell Carcinoma.
Since its foundation, the nonprofit has raised approximately $800,000.
