Gilda’s Club Evansville Hosts Rock Your Ribbon: A Parade of Hope 2020 Tri-State Cancer Survivor Day

WHO: Anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer and those who want to support cancer survivors by driving by to honk and cheer.

WHAT: To protect the health of our vulnerable population, Gilda’s Club is hosting a drive-by Parade of Hope to celebrate cancer survivors and their loved ones. Cancer survivors and their supporters are invited to don their cancer ribbon color, decorate their car and parade through our parking lot. Once they arrive at the survivors’ tent, they’ll be given a survivor sign, swag, and treats. We’ll also have a Ribbon Trail in front of the Clubhouse along Vogel Road.

WHERE: Gilda’s Clubhouse 5740 Vogel Road Evansville, IN 47715

WHEN: Sunday, June 7, 2020
2-3 pm

WHY: June 7th is National Cancer Survivor Day and we are celebrating it in the Tri-State. Our purpose is to honor and encourage cancer survivors and those who care for them, while respecting the need to physically distance to protect the health of our community.

HOW: Submit your survivor’s name, type of cancer and date of diagnosis to angie@gcevv.org or day-of registrations will be taken at the event.

DETAILS: Gilda’s Club Evansville is a free cancer support community for anyone living with cancer and their families and friends. Gilda’s Club recognizes that social and emotional support are as essential as medical care when cancer is in the family and offers a variety of virtual workshops, classes, and support groups.
