The Giving Gig 2016 raised more than $1.4 million for Community’s cancer patients!
More than 1,000 donors from across Central Indiana gathered at the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown on February 20 for Community Health Network Foundation’s The Giving Gig 2016. Guests had the opportunity to bid on silent and live auction items and enjoyed a performance by Huey Lewis and The News. In its fourth year, the event was hosted by WTHR meteorologist Nicole Misencik and raised more than $1.4 million for Community Health Network’s Oncology Patient Assistance Fund, which provides vouchers to cancer patients in financial need to help them access nutritious food, transportation to treatment and life-saving medication.
We offer our deepest thanks for all of the generous donors who helped make 2016 a record-setting year and for the many Community employees who volunteered their time to ensure the event ran smoothly!
The Giving Gig hostess
We are honored that Nicole Misencik, a meteorologist at WTHR 13, our event’s official television station, will serve as our event hostess for the second year in a row. An avid runner, health advocate and volunteer, Nicole joined the SkyTrak 13 Weather Team in 2007. Follow her @NicoleWTHR.
This is it!
Battling cancer takes a village, and sometimes a band. It also takes the power of love. That’s why Huey Lewis and The News are coming to perform at The Giving Gig 2016, Community Health Network Foundation’s fundraiser to help cancer patients with financial struggles. All proceeds from this event will benefit our Oncology Patient Assistance Fund that helps cancer patients overcome financial barriers that limit their access to nutrition, medication, transportation and basic needs. Money raised at the event will sustain this financial assistance program, which provides $250 vouchers so that a patient fighting cancer has a little less to worry about.
This year’s live auction, presented by Melissa Davis, president of Christy’s of Indiana, Inc., will feature several premium packages that will make you want to raise your hand and lift a life. Live and silent auction packages will be released in early 2016.
Join us on Saturday, February 20 for The Giving Gig 2016, guaranteed to be a fun and energetic evening with cocktails, dinner, auctions, a concert by Huey Lewis, and lots and lots of giving!
