Reunion with a Cause supports Genesys cancer patients

(GRAND BLANC/HOLLY, MI) Genesys, in partnership with the Holly community, sponsors the ninth annual Reunion with a Cause, Friday, Aug. 10, from 6 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., at the Holly High School track.
One hundred percent of the proceeds from the fundraising event go to help Genesys cancer patients with special financial needs.

The evening begins with a celebration walk for all cancer survivors, family members and friends.

Following the walk around the Holly High School track, Butchie Mackey, a Holly resident and Reunion with a Cause organizer, will begin opening ceremonies by introducting Elizabeth Aderholdt, president and CEO of Genesys who will welcome all supporters of the annual event.

Entertainment (including musicians, dancers and an Elvis impersonator), family activities, children's games, a Chinese silent auction, and refreshments fill the evening with plenty to do for everyone who attends.

The Reunion concludes with a candle-lighting ceremony to remember those who lost their battle to cancer.

Reunion with a Cause supporters are encouraged to collect donations. Last year's event yielded more than $80,000 - another recordbreaking year.

This money is used to help Genesys cancer patients with their physical and emotional needs during treatment. This includes: medication not covered by insurance, medical equipment, rental equipment, private pay aides, transportation to and from cancer treatments, and other special needs not covered by insurance.

Everyone in the community is welcome to join the festivities - by walking the track, enjoying the entertainment, supporting cancer survivors, or making a contribution.
