There's no secret as to what Community Health Foundation's Giving Gig is all about. It's right there in our name. Heck, it is our name. Sure the music is great, but at the end of the night, it's all about the giving. For our sponsors and donors it's about the giving of time, talent and funds. For those attending it's about the giving of resources with which they've been blessed. And for those we're out to help, it's about giving hope.
The 2015 event raised $1.2 million to support the Oncology Patient Assistance Fund, but the need is so great that we need to ask our donors and corporate partners to unite again in 2016 so that we can continue to help those patients who need extra support. Usage of the vouchers our oncology social workers are able to hand to qualified patients is growing at a rapid rate, changing the lives of people and families worried about their health and their financial stability. Supporting The Giving Gig is one way you can offer them comfort and relief.
Cancer is a tough journey and those afflicted with it deserve every dime. Which is precisely why all the proceeds from The Giving Gig directly benefit the needs of cancer patients and their families. Those needs range from assistance with meals and transportation to co-pays and the basic cost of living. It's all about helping ordinary people during extraordinary times. It's all about giving.
