Cancer Navigators’ Wreath Auction Has Begun
Your support of Rome-based Cancer Navigators might lead to that perfect wreath hanging above the mantle or on your front door during the holiday season.
For the ninth consecutive year, Cancer Navigators is holding its annual wreath auction. Many of the wreaths have been designed by area artists, florists, garden clubs, businesses and interior designers, donating their own time and material. Funds raised through the auction will help cancer patients served by Cancer Navigators.
Everyone is invited to participate in the silent auction by writing down their bid on the form accompanying the wreath or wreaths they want. The silent auction ends at 1 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 2, with the highest bidder winning the wreath.
“We are always moved by the support of the community this time of year,” said Sarah Husser, Cancer Navigators Fundraising & Community Outreach Coordinator. “The wreaths are truly beautiful, and I hope those who made them and those who are the high bidders know how thankful our patients are for their compassion.”
The wreaths will be on display Nov. 1 through Dec. 2 at the Harbin Clinic Tony E. Warren, M.D. Cancer Center during regular business hours, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday through Friday and in the Wright Art Gallery at Floyd Medical Center near the gift shop on the second floor. Some wreaths will also be displayed at Cherokee Medical Center in Centre, Alabama.
