Cancer Support Community Greater St. Louis' Hope After Dark Gala

Cancer Support Community Greater St. Louis' Hope After Dark Gala

  • Updated

Cancer Support Community Greater St. Louis held its Hope After Dark gala in October at PALM Health in Ladue. The in-person, outdoor “A Night to Celebrate” component of the gala, which followed its “A Day to Give” component, involved a limited guest list and safety precautions with respect to the COVID-19 pandemic. Guests were also invited to participate virtually.

Both virtual and in-person guests savored live music, bid on auction items and heard the inspirational story of the 2020 Marsha Wolff-Tina Borchert Inspiration Award recipient, the Peggy and Mike Nelson family. The Hope After Dark fundraising campaign generated more than $225,000. The organization works to provide those impacted by cancer with emotional support, educational resources, social connections and a place of understanding.

“Cancer has not stopped during COVID, and neither has Cancer Support Community Greater St. Louis," says executive director Lori Thaman. "Our fall fundraising campaign, Hope After Dark: ‘A Day to Give. A Night to Celebrate,’ helped ensure that we can continue providing virtual, no-cost psychosocial support to anyone impacted by cancer, so no one faces cancer alone.”
