The money used to help cancer
patients in Lawrence County comes from a variety of sources. Our group of
volunteers host several fundraisers throughout the year. In addition, several events are held where survivor bracelets are sold, and the Lawrence County Cancer Patient Services group is recognized. That's not all! Organizations in Lawrence County often host events to support the LCCPS's cause. Some of the events include:
Step back in time for a Victorian tea. Women and little girls dressed in
their Sunday best come out and snack on delicacies while drinking tea from fine
china. This popular event is held every April and includes a silent auction and
door prizes. In 2012 the event raised $3,316 from ticket sales
and auction proceeds. Come join us at our next tea!
Summer Garden Tour
Several homes with beautiful gardens allow people to tour their gardens
while local artists paint. Refreshments are served and everyone enjoys a
tranquil afternoon in a summer garden.
Fall Car Show
Antique cars and trucks are on display each fall at the Ford lot by the
Bridge on 37 while a variety of fun events go on.
This is an event for the cancer survivors and their caregivers that the LCCPS know of. Survivor bracelets that are $10 a piece are sold there. Proceeds benefit the LCCPS.
Holiday Home Tour
Each year on the first Sunday of December couples around Lawrence County open their homes for a festive holiday tour. Guests may drive themselves in the afternoon or board buses after a banquet of holiday treats and tour the homes. All proceeds go to help patients.
Bedford Christmas Parade
In 2018, a float was offered to be borrowed by the LCCPS to carry survivors during the parade. The float was adorned with hearts, Christmas wreaths, and a Santa.
Events Hosted by Others in the Past:
Donut Run - The Bedford North Lawrence High School sponsored this boisterous run with donut eating, part of whose proceeds went to the LCCPS.
Run with Santa - This Christmas run was sponsored by Dr. Sowders with funds raised donated to LCCPS.
Road Rally - The Women's Moose Auxiliary group has held a road rally and donated their proceeds to the LCCPS for several years.
Decorate a Bra Contest - Curves held a contest to decorate bras and clients voted on the best decorated bra. The bras were decorated with a variety of themes. People paid to vote and the bra with the most votes won!
