Our 3rd annual cocktail party fundraiser was held last week at the home of Walt and Kelli Geminn. CCX supporters enjoyed a festive night of food, drinks and music while raising nearly $6,000 to brighten the day of people who are facing cancer.
This event was a perfect ending to a banner year for The Cancer Card Xchange. We also wrapped up 2015 with a huge fundraising effort in November. A local charitable trust matched all donations in our $5k A Different Way campaign which resulted in a total of $20,000 in donations. These funds were used to purchase gift cards for our waiting list of patient referrals.
Several school and church groups collected gift card donations during the holiday season. These efforts make such a huge difference in our ability to send gifts out and involve kids in helping others.
Since June 2011, The Cancer Card Xchange has given away just shy of $170,000 in gift cards to over 1,800 cancer patients - spreading good in the world.
