The Summer Classics Home Store in Pelham invites you to join us for a Wine & Cheese and Silent Auction event to benefit the Hope For Autumn Foundation on Thursday, October 19 from 4 until 7 pm. RSVP today!
“Most people have been touched by childhood cancer,” says Executive Director of Hope for Autumn Foundation Amanda Knerr. “One out of 300 kids will be diagnosed with cancer by the time they are 21. Awareness leads to funding and funding leads to cures.” Knerr has experienced first-hand what families go through with a cancer diagnosis, as she has a child who is a cancer survivor. That makes her more determined to never have to say no to anyone with a child with cancer, most of whom experience a 40% reduction in income due to the diagnosis and who may need help paying a car bill to drive to Children’s Hospital to receive treatment or need help paying a power bill.
