Cruise Against Cancer
Newport's Hard Times Street Rod Club, in association with Celebrate Life Cancer Support Group, invites you to attend the ninth-annual Cruise Against Cancer... Saturday April 22, 2017.... 6AM to Midnight... Rain Or Shine. This event will again take place at Lowe's Home Improvement, located at 120 Epley Road in Newport. Cruise Against Cancer is an 18-Hour Cruise In, featuring music, food, T-shirts, a bake sale, games, a benefit auction, and more. This event is open to all special-interest, antique, or collectible automobiles... As always, participants may come and go as they please throughout the day. There is no admission fee, but donations are greatly appreciated. (As this event is a fundraiser, no additional vendor spaces will be available.) For photos from previous events and further information, please visit: www.facebook.com/CelebrateLifeCruiseAgainstCancer Event Coordinator Nathan Manning can also be reached by phone at 865-548-6152. Since beginning in 2009. Cruise Against Cancer has become the primary fundraiser for Celebrate Life Cancer Support Group. Over the years, this event has raised more than $130,000 for local cancer patients. Funds generated on this day will help meet the basic needs of hundreds of cancer patients throughout Cocke, Jefferson, & Sevier Counties. Celebrate Life provides assistance with medical costs, utility bills, gas cards, groceries, prosthetic devices, and various other expenditures with which cancer patients may be struggling. In addition, their "Manna From Heaven" snack ministry keeps refreshments available to radiation and chemotherapy patients at cancer treatment centers in Morristown & Sevierville. As a Susan G. Komen grantee, Celebrate Life may also provide financial assistance to breast cancer patients throughout Eastern Tennessee. We want to be sure people understand the primary difference between Relay For Life and Celebrate Life. The majority of funds generated by Relay are used toward cancer research... while every penny raised by Celebrate Life will stay in our community... directly assisting local area cancer patients. Both charities are vital in the fight against cancer, but each organization has a very different focus. Celebrate Life Cancer Support group serves hundreds of local area cancer patients every year. Meanwhile, the need in our community increases daily. While we'd love to see you at our Cruise Against Cancer in April, itís important to note that donations may be made at any time. Checks may be made payable to: "Celebrate Life - Cruise Against Cancer" c/o Michele Sexton PO Box 263 Newport, TN 37822 We sincerely hope you'll join us in supporting this day of food, fun, fellowship, and philanthropy. Nearly all of us have been affected by cancer in one way or another. Cruise Against Cancer offers us the chance to come together and make a big difference.
