A NIGHT FOR A CURE

NightforCureSusanKomen20185On Sunday, October 21, 2018, Woodloch Pines Resort will host the 11th Annual A Night for the Cure. The tricky-tray fundraiser benefits the Susan G. Komen for the Cure as part of BK Hope Cures. Originally established 19 years ago by Bob Kiesendahl (BK), co-owner of Woodloch and leukemia survivor, the organization’s mission is to raise awareness and funds in the fight against cancer.

Last year’s event attracted 400 attendees and raised over $20,000, 100% of which benefits the Susan G. Komen for the Cure. 50% of the dollars raised stay right here in Northeast Pennsylvania for education, screening and treatment grants, and 50% goes towards cancer research.

Held in the Heritage Nightclub at Woodloch Pines from 5 to 8 PM, the family-friendly evening will feature over 150 items donated by local individuals and businesses, as well as wine and beer tastings, chair massages, face painting for children, hors d’oeuvres, a dessert table, and a 50/50 raffle. Guests will enjoy live entertainment and have the chance to win overnight stay packages at the area’s leading resorts and hotels, dining gift certificates, unique gift baskets as well as this year’s raffle prize – a Perception Swifty Kayak! Admission costs $10, and 100% of the proceeds are donated. The dress code is casual, and attendees are encouraged to wear pink in support of the cause.

“Now in its 11th year, the event gets better each time. It’s a great night to get together with friends, show our support for the survivors, and raise money for the cause. We are so grateful to the local businesses and individuals who donate their time and talents to make A Night for the Cure spectacular. All of this hard work and generosity is truly making a difference in the battle against cancer,”” said Bob Kiesendahl.

In addition to A Night for the Cure, Hope Cures also holds two other fundraising events each year, which include both a golf tournament and a 5K run/walk.

These funds benefit cancer research and patient care at several worthy facilities and foundations.

During the past 19 years, Hope Cures has raised over $1.2 million.
