Spring Garden Party Continues Support
Although we cannot gather in person, please consider making a donation to give cancer patients comfort.
Dear Spring Garden Party Supporters,
This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Spring Garden Party. In normal times this would be a milestone to celebrate. Unfortunately, to keep everyone safe, we must wait another year before gathering together.
Covid-19 continues to impact our daily lives. It has made the treatment of cancer lonelier and more stressful than ever. Cancer patients are still not allowed to have visitors accompany them into treatments. They cannot have loved ones holding their hands during chemotherapy to take their mind off the reason for the visit. Over the years your generous donations have provided amenities such as sleeper chairs for patient rooms, an IV warming machine, wigs, blanket warming machines, robes, slippers and socks for radiation patients, and music therapy programs. Without your generosity through the Spring Garden Party, these extras would not be possible.
Although we cannot gather in person, please consider making a donation of the normal $125 per person ticket price, or any amount, to give cancer patients comfort when they need it most. Your donation is 100% tax deductible. Please send a check to the TMH Foundation and include “Spring Garden Party” on the memo line or make a donation online. Choose “Spring Garden Party” under “Gift Designation.”
It is with sincere gratitude that we thank you for your continued support of patients with cancer!
