29th Annual Goldschmidt Cancer Center Boost BBQ
Rumors are flying that COVID has silenced the Boost BBQ! No one has heard anything about it, and the time is quickly approaching for what should be year 29. COVID has complicated everything. What are cancer patients doing for Boost nutritional supplement and wigs? Don't worry, nothing could have stopped us from taking care of our friends and neighbors who were in need. Boost and wig donations continued.
Sadly, the pandemic has dealt us another blow and we will not be able to have our BBQ again this year. While unfortunate, there is no need to fear, 2022 will be our year!
Past Boosters, Big Wigs and Cheerleaders will continue to support the program out in the community. These people are unstoppable— won’t you join them?
For many cancer patients, nutritional supplements and wigs are necessary during treatment, but they are expensive. Goldschmidt Cancer Center is able to provide nutritional supplements and wigs to cancer patients, free of charge, to 23 counties with the money raised from the Boost BBQ.
You can still help us this year by choosing to be a:
* Booster – donating $30 (cost per case of nutritional supplement)
* Big Wig – donating $100 (the average cost of a wig)
* Cheerleader – donating $150 (the average cost of the Look Good Feel Better workshop for one person to learn tips and tricks for applying makeup to their changing skin, how to style a wig and styling techniques for hair loss.)
What began as a rummage sale in the back room at Naught Naught Agency 28 years ago has raised over $800,000 and provided nutritional supplements and wigs for so many cancer patients who could not afford them. A few years ago the Naughts decided to bring the Boost BBQ under the umbrella of the CRMC Foundation.
2021 marks the 29th year of the Boost BBQ and we want to celebrate the accomplishments; applaud the survivors; raise even more money to help those still fighting cancer and take a moment to remember those who lost their battle, but we need your help. Please consider becoming a part of this worthwhile cause.
