The holidays are approaching and area artists, florists, garden clubs, businesses, interior designers, and creative individuals have joined Cancer Navigators, Inc. and the Harbin Clinic Tony E. Warren, MD Cancer Center to create and sell original holiday wreaths to benefit Cancer Navigators – a Rome-based charity that provides one-on-one services to cancer patients.
Original masterpiece wreaths have been created by generous members of our community and will be on display November 1st – 29th at the Harbin Clinic Cancer Center during regular business hours (8 am till 5 pm Monday through Friday) and the Wright Art Gallery at Floyd Medical Center (near gift shop). Everyone is invited to view the wreaths and participate in the silent auction. The silent auction ends at 1:00 pm on Thursday, Nov. 29th with the highest bidder winning the wreath. You can also place bids on select wreaths online at www.cancernavigatorsga.org.
According to Sarah Husser, Cancer Navigators Fundraising & Community Outreach Coordinator, “This is the 8th year of this festive event and it gets bigger and better each year. The array of wreaths brings so much joy to our patients and their families as it kicks-off the holiday season. It’s amazing how the community has embraced this project. We expect a great holiday display again this year and a successful fundraiser.” Admission to the Cancer Center to view the wreaths is free.
