Welcome

 

NOTICE: 

Due to the recent circumstances regarding the coronavirus, the 39th annual Waynesboro Area Gala Cancer Auction has been cancelled.  We will be back bigger and stronger in 2021 and will announce a date as soon as we can.  For now, we have sent a letter to donors to inform them of this change.  You can see the letter HERE.

We sincerely appreciate each and every donation and if you did not receive this letter in the mail, we apologize.  Please use the email address in the letter to respond with your decision on how to proceed with your donation by June 15th.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: 

In the letter that was mailed to the item donors this week, we apologize for not addressing the cash donations we have received.  We will be allocating those monies in July or August.  Thank you for you continued support!

AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice.


Thank you!  For helping us have another successful auction that will help us distribute the proceeds to local agencies in the fight against Cancer.  The final total for 2019 is $100,000

Here is a breakdown of how we have allocated your generous donations to the 2019 auction:

  • $10,000 — LIVESTRONG at the Waynesboro YMCA
  • $10,000 — Oncology Bridge Fund at Summit Health
  • $15,000 — Hennessy Home through Summit Health — To go toward the renovations for the new Cancer Wellness Center at Hennessy Home.
  • $20,000 — Hope Lodge of Central Pennsylvania (Hershey) — We will adopt 2 rooms.
  • $20,000 — AstraZeneca Hope Lodge of Philadelphia — We will adopt 2 rooms.
  • $25,000 — American Cancer Society – Franklin County Unit

With the proceeds from our 2018 Gala Auction we were able to allocate $15,000 to the Hershey Hope Lodge (along with other distributions). The money donated to the lodge was used to greatly improve the Tranquility Garden enjoyed by all of the patients and caregivers who are given accommodations at the lodge.

Click HERE for a gallery of videos and photos of the new garden made possible by your generous donations to the Waynesboro Gala Cancer Auction.

Also in 2018, we allocated $15,000 to the Philadelphia Hope Lodge, which was used to “Adopt-A-Room” for patients and families to stay in.  Click HERE to see one entry in the journal left by families thanking you! — for your generous donations.
