Wreath Auction Raises $9,000
The floors of the Harbin Clinic Tony E. Warren, MD Cancer Center, along with the Floyd Medical Center Art Gallery and Floyd Primary Care in Rockmart have been decked out with designer wreaths throughout the month of November. Cancer Navigators Wreath Auction ended Monday, Nov. 28, raising nearly $9,000 for the local nonprofit that helps cancer patients on their journey.
Area florists, garden clubs, businesses, cancer survivors and individuals participated in creating one-of-a-kind wreaths that were part of the silent auction.
“The staff and board of Cancer Navigators want to express our heartfelt thanks to everyone who gave of their time and creative talent to make this year’s Christmas wreath auction the best one yet,” said Community Outreach Manager Scharla Battle. “Our community has so many generous people who are always willing to help when they know there is a need.” The money raised by the wreath auction will help Cancer Navigators fulfill its mission of helping cancer patients in our area with support and resource needs.
This year the wreath auction featured over 75 original wreaths. In addition, this year’s event included a handmade Christmas quilt that brought in $325 alone. The top bid on a wreath was $300.
Battle encourages those who would like to make an end of the year tax deduction donation send to Cancer Navigators at 3 Central Plaza #415, Rome, GA 30161 or donate online.
