Reunion raises funds for Genesys cancer patients

GRAND BLANC — Genesys, in partnership with the Holly community, sponsors the eighth annual Reunion with a Cause, Aug. 12 from 6 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., at Holly High School. One hundred percent of the proceeds from this event go to help Genesys cancer patients with special financial needs.

The evening begins with a celebration walk for all cancer survivors “symbolizing hope for others who are affected by this disease,” reports Nick Evans, Genesys Health Foundation vice president.

Following the walk around the Holly High School track, family activities, entertainment, children’s games, a silent auction, music and refreshments highlight the evening, which concludes with a candle-lighting ceremony to remember those whose lost their battle to cancer.
