The Cathy Miller Cancer Fund congratulates everyone involved in this hugely successful event. We ae extremely proud of our new partners, a group honoring Denise McAloon a former patient at Fox Chase Cancer Center and a huge supporter of the AstraZeneca Hope Lodge. The D-Day Partnership joins the Cathy Miller Cancer Fund family to increase awareness, promote volunteerism, donations and financial support for CMCF, Coaches vs. Cancer and the AstraZeneca Hope Lodge.
Congratulations to Dennis Dunphy, Cathy Miller Cancer Fund’s Volunteer of the Year. As a faithful kitchen volunteer at the AstraZeneca HOPE Lodge, Dennis helps nourish a resident’s body and spirit. We were proud to recognize his kind-filled efforts at the Thirteenth Annual Catherine Veronica Christmas Gala on December 8th 2018. Over 200 guests joined in the festivities honoring Denny. The essence of the evening consisted of camaraderie, dining at the scrumptious buffet and strutting with the Quaker City String Band. Through the efforts of our committee members, CMCF realized a profit of over $65,000, all of which will be contributed to the HOPE Lodge, targeting the Kitchen Renovation Project. The remodeling of the kitchen is due to commence by early summer.
The Board of Trustees of the Cathy Miller Cancer Fund wish to extend sincere thanks to Bob McCormick of Toyota of Vineland for his generous $2500 donation which is being matched by the Toyota Matching Funds Program. Bob is a longtime supporter of the Cathy Miller Cancer Fund and we are grateful for his kindness.
