The NASF Palmetto Southeast Chapter help a "Stick it to Cancer" fundraiser and 2017 New Year kickoff event which chapter president and Big Anodes president Paul Skelton says was a great success.


"The event on Feb. 10 was a chapter social mixer, hockey game and more importantly, the fundraiser, attracted approximately 25 to 30 members, friends and families in attendance between both pre-game and the actual hockey game," Skelton said. "The Chapter was successful in raising charitable contributions in exchange for  tickets to this event in the amount of $1500.00, the donations are to benefit a local Greenville, SC foundation and project, the Greenville Cancer Survivors Park." 


The chapter felt led to donate to something organic and close to its roots where many members reside within the Greenville area, and where many meetings and events take place. The purpose of the Cancer Survivors Park is to provide a place of respite and rejuvenation, inspiration, education, hope, and celebration for anyone touched by cancer.  Visit the webpage to find out more about the park: http://www.cancersurvivorspark.org.


"We recognize that Cancer is something that we must acknowledge everyday," Skelton says. "We must not take life for granted and we hope that someday there will be a cure."
