The American Cancer Society is hosting the Sixth Night of Hope Dinner on Thursday, November 9, in Clinton.
The event starts at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at 205 Main in Clinton. The dinner will feature special guest Maria Cornelius, who is a breast cancer survivor and author of “The Final Season – The Perserverance of Pat Summitt,” a press release said.
The event has been recruiting table hosts, whose role is to invite seven to eight other people to sit at their table and help in serving dinner. They will also be assisted by high school student volunteers who will be waiting on tables. There is no fee to host a table.
Throughout the fun-filled evening, guests at the table will be encouraged to tip their waiters for good service, and tallies will be run throughout the evening for competition, a press release said. The table with the most tips at the end of the evening will be crowned the 2017 Night of Hope Winner and awarded a prize package.
“This is a great way for cancer survivors to get family, friends, co-workers, and church family to rally around them in their fight against cancer or to celebrate their cure,” a press release said. “It is also a way to remember a loved one who has lost his or her battle to cancer. Churches are also encouraged to get a table together to participate in this event.”
Table hosts are encouraged to decorate their own table to a specific theme to add to the fun and variety. A dessert auction with auctioneer Randy Lowe will be held to conclude the dinner.
“The evening is great opportunity to help people stay well, get well, find cures, and fight back against cancer!” the press release said.
