Since its inception in 1980, more than $17 million have been contributed to organizations whose purpose is directly related to the treatment, patient assistance, and eradication of cancer. Much of the costs to produce the auction are underwritten by corporate sponsors. Individuals, wine producers and other businesses donate auction items, with the single objective of generating as much money as possible for cancer related programs. Nashville Wine Auction is proud to provide financial support to those organizations.
|American Cancer Society - The American Cancer Society is working to create a world with more birthdays – a world where cancer never steals another year from anyone’s life. We help you celebrate more birthdays by showing you how to stay well by encouraging you to take steps to prevent cancer or detect it early. We help you fight for more birthdays and help you get well by guiding you through every step of a cancer experience if you or someone you love is faced with a diagnosis. We find cures by supporting the best ideas of the brightest cancer researchers. We believe everyone deserves more birthdays, and we fight back by working tirelessly to rally lawmakers and communities to join our fight to save lives from cancer. Together, we’re fighting for every birthday, threatened by every cancer, in every community – including yours. “Happy Birthday” is our victory song.Hope Lodge- Getting the right care sometimes means cancer patients must travel away from home, often to a cancer treatment facility in another city. The American Cancer Society makes this difficult situation easier with free, temporary housing accommodations for cancer patients and their families while undergoing treatment. Hope Lodge provides guests with private rooms, kitchen facilities, and transportation to treatments. The lodge has room for a family member to stay with the patient. Perhaps the most important thing that a Hope Lodge provides is a supportive and home-like environment which is conducive to the unique needs of its guests.To watch our video about Hope Lodge, please click here.|
