Events

Hope Connections' events are as eclectic as the people who attend them.  Whether a fundraising activity to raise funds to support our free programs, an education program, mind/body retreat, or participant potluck, all provide an opportunity for people to come together with the common goal of improving the quality of life of those affected by cancer in our community.
