Home Parties – A fun way to help those you know
Families of children with cancer are often asked by their friends, “How can I help?” One answer is to honor a family or a child battling childhood cancer by hosting a party in their honor. Honoring the legacy of the struggle, the determination and the courage of these special children is the whole point behind a home party. These home fundraising parties can take virtually any form, from a casual barbeque or pizza party to a more formal cocktail or dinner party. It’s up to you. Contact us via email or by calling the office and we’ll help get you started. Paula Collins at 770-986-0035 ext. 23 or email@example.com.
