Red Balloon: Cocktails for a Cause - April 7, 2017|
Greenville Country Club, Greenville, DE
Cancer Support Community Delaware's Red Balloon: Cocktails for a Cause event was held on
Friday, April 7, 2017 at Greenville Country Club. The annual event was transformed this year
from a brunch into an evening event, featuring cocktails, heavy hors d'oeuvres, silent and
live auctions and live music! The new format was a big hit with 150+ guests including U.S.
Senator Chris Coons who stopped by to show support! Following the namesake tradition, guests
paid tribute to loved ones and friends affected by cancer by sponsoring a red balloon in
their honor/memory. Greenville Country Club's venue was covered wall-to-wall with red
balloons! The event was a truly special and personal experience for all. The evening was
concluded with an exciting live auction hosted by professional auctioneer, Jeff Hammond,
featuring jewelry, a chef's dinner for 8 people, and a private golf outing at Fieldstone.
All proceeds benefit programs at Cancer Support Community Delaware.
