Hats for Hope silent auction benefits fight against breast cancer

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A celebration of surviving, friendship, fun and fashion took place to help the fight against breast cancer.

Thursday, Hats for Hope held a silent auction for hats, jewelry, gift certificates, trips and more.

Over the last eight years, Hats for Hope has raised approximately $350,000 towards the fight against breast cancer.

A new partnership with the James Graham Brown Cancer Center allowed 100 percent of the proceeds to go to the Brown Cancer Resource Center.

The Resource Center will use the money to purchase items to help patients and their families to be more comfortable such as camisoles, prosthetics and wigs, as well as gas cards and hotel vouchers for chemo and radiation treatments.  Money raised will also help fund salaries for a social worker, data assistant and nurse for the Resource Center.
