Alpha Epsilon Delta at the University of Florida held a luminaria ceremony and fundraiser to honor loved ones lost to cancer, battling cancer, or who have overcome their cancer. It was a beautiful way to honor loved ones, and the event raised over $2500 for the Climb for Cancer Foundation.
Climb for Cancer Foundation co-founders, Ron and Dianne Farb, are humbled and honored to receive a 2020 Community Foundation of North Central Florida Legacy Award. The Legacy Awards celebrates charitable giving in our community and recognizes the crucial interaction between donors, advisors and the nonprofit community in making philanthropy happen.
Your Donations at Work
In these unprecedented times, we are so grateful to have donors like you. With your generosity and dedication to our cause, we were able to make gifts totaling almost $150,000 to programs including the Harriet's Helping Hand program for patient lodging assistance, gas cards, and meal vouchers; pediatric psychology services; and Project Continuity, which provides cancer screening and prevention services, and links patients to resources in the community.
