Dine-In for Duke Cancer Support Center
September 24 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm$7
Location: Home of Nate & Sharon Reiss (RSVP for directions – near Robinhood/Polo area)
Join us for a delicious pasta dinner and dessert to raise funds for Duke Cancer Support Center.
Cost to attend is $7. Attendees are welcome to bring a drink or bottle of wine (or 6 pack of beer or non-alcoholic beverage) to share.
All proceeds will benefit the Duke Cancer Center, which is a priority project of the North Carolina Jaycees. Each year, more than 6,000 cancer patients come to Duke for the treatment of cancer. Drawn by the Cancer Center’s national and international reputation, nearly 1/4 of these patients come from outside of North Carolina. The North Carolina Jaycees have been a partner with the Duke Comprehensive Cancer Center since 1987 and have contributed over $1,000,000 to aid the Cancer Center in making “life easier” for patients and families alike.
For more information regarding the Duke Cancer Center or any questions, please contact Brittani Swinford at [email protected]
We reached out to Duke Cancer Patient Support Program and they let us know about their current donation needs. If you want to donate any of these items, please bring them to the dinner!
Please let Nate Reiss, Sharon Reiss or Jennifer Cassels know if you have any questions at all!!
