On Saturday, May 31, from 2 p.m. until it gets dark, the Cancer Center Community Crusaders will be hosting its first Cupcake Crusade and Community Remembrance on the campus of Southwestern Vermont Medical Center, 100 Hospital Drive in Bennington.
This public event will consist of a special cupcake contest with local judges, plus children’s activities, basket bingo, remembrance doves and a special candlelight ceremony. All of the money raised from the event will support Southwestern Vermont Regional Cancer Center, with the majority of the funds allocated to help cancer patients cope with day-to-day stressors, such as transportation costs and lost wages during treatment. A portion of the funds also will support local cancer research, such as the new clinical trials. The community is invited to participate in the event. If you’d like to help, or just want more information, call the SVHC Foundation at 802-447-5017 or by emailing [email protected]
