Local Nonprofit Hopes Upcoming Fundraiser Will Break Records for Cancer Patients – Event Held Wednesday, October 12, 2022

September 13, 2022

After a record-breaking fundraiser last year raising over $17,911 in donations, A Message of HOPE Cancer Fund is looking to raise the bar once again on donations.

A Message of HOPE Cancer Fund, a local 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in Southern Maryland, will be hosting their 8th Annual “Bras and Drawers for the Cause” on Wednesday, October 12th.  The event will be held at the American Legion in Hughesville from 6pm – 9pm and all monies raised will directly support local cancer patients.

American Legion, Post 238, Hughesville, MD located at 6265 Brandywine Road in Hughesville, MD 20637.

The event will feature men and women dressing in decorated “bras and drawers” and a variety of costumes, dancing around the room in hopes of raising the most money for charity.  The event will also feature a live auction, a silent auction, and balloon pops. Each balloon popped contains a ticket to win a gift card donated by various local businesses.

Connie Gunn, Vice President of the nonprofit had this to say: “We’re grateful to have so much community involvement & support both with helping us to raise funds but also getting our organization into the public eye, so those cancer victims struggling, know that we’re here to help them with the financial burden. Cancer is hard enough, worrying about paying the mortgage or keeping the lights on, on top of chemo & radiation is unimaginable for some families. Our goal this year is to raise $25,000, it’s enough to pay one cancer victims’ mortgage for an entire year and to help others with utility bills. How can you help us? Show up and have fun!”

Join us for a FUN-FILLED evening that will include a LIVE bra and drawers auction; live music by DJ Skipp; dinner; balloon pops; a silent auction; cash bar and tons of FUN!

All proceeds from this event will go to A Message of HOPE Cancer Fund, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization (no admin/employee expenses) which provides direct financial assistance to local families in the Tri-County Area facing the monetary burdens associated with cancer. Assistance includes support with co-pays, prescription drugs, rent/mortgage, groceries, and gas to and from treatment. Help us raise money to benefit this wonderful organization!
