  Drink For Cancer

Terre Haute, IN, April 11, 2013 Indiana State students will be teaming up with The Verve on April 25th in an effort to help benefit the Caring Community Foundation. CCF is a non-profit charitable organization that provides financial assistance to cancer patients in need.

The Caring Community Foundation is a 501(c) (3) assistance cancer patient in and around the Triangle area of North Carolina.  CCF supports basic financial needs by providing assistance with rent, utilities, treatment or other expenses that become difficult to manage during cancer treatment. The organization’s “Pay-It-Forward” philosophy drives their mission and impacts everything they do.

Jill Wolford “I am excited to see how this event turns out and am glad the ISU students are willing to help us raise money.” This event is to raise money for cancer patients and all proceeds will be going to the Caring Community Foundation. The Verve is happy to host and help raise money. There will be a band that will be playing for free for everyone to have fun, listen to music and to get their drink on! A five-dollar cover for males and any tips received will be going to this wonderful organization!

The organization was established in 2001 by a breast cancer survivor who wanted to demonstrate her gratitude for the outpouring of community and family support she received during her own treatment. Sadly, cancer affects nearly everyone in some way. The Caring Community Foundation proudly helps alleviate financial stress and burdens for cancer patients in need so they can focus on treatment and recovery.
