Tailgating For Cancer Features Fun Football Theme

April 18, 2018 · News

The Sept. 29 Tailgating for Cancer event will include music, food, spirits and an auction, all for a good cause.

The celebration will honor individuals who helped the organization grow. Although Cancer Navigators will benefit, the party is less of a fund-raiser and more of a friendraiser.

The event will include a silent auction, but raising money is not the goal. The goal is to provide a social event for the community, while honoring those who helped build-up Cancer Navigators.
