Cash Bash to benefit young cancer patients

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The 17th annual Cards of Hope™ Cash Bash and Auction to benefit young cancer patients will be held at 6 p.m. Nov. 1 at Lakeview Golf Resort and Conference Center.

Cards of Hope™ are holiday greeting cards designed by West Virginia University Children’s Hospital cancer patients and survivors and their siblings during an annual summer party. The cards are the main resource for the Cure Kids Cancer Fund, a project of WVU Children’s Hospital that ensures patients are provided state-of-the-art medical care, as well as psychological and social support for them and their families.

All of the original children’s designs will be displayed and auctioned during the Cash Bash. The evening also includes a buffet dinner and entertainment by illusionist/magician Josh Knotts.

Cash prizes totaling $5,000 will be given away throughout the evening, including a $2,000 grand prize drawing at 10 p.m. The winner does not need to be present to win.

Sleigh Time by Becky Diller, 14, of Oakland, Md.
