10th Anniversary Celebration - Sussex County|
Saturday, September 24, 2016 - Lewes, Delaware
A very special reception was held at the home of Honorary Chairs, Mr. and Mrs. Alan Lehman. Guests were treated to a delicious variety of hors d'oeuvres by local caterer Chris Lehman, Sposato Wines and entertainment by The Problematics. In addition to celebrating our 10th Anniversary of providing services in Sussex County, the event also honored Dr. Srihari Peri, Medical Director for Medical Oncology, Tunnell Cancer Center. Since our arrival in Sussex County, Dr. Peri has been a vocal advocate for the Cancer Support Community Delaware. He is much beloved because of his extraordinary concern for the welfare and care of his patients and their families. In a touching ceremony, Dr. Peri was awarded the 2016 Cancer Support Community Humanitarian Award. It was a beautiful celebration thanks to the incredible efforts of our Host Committee: Stephani Allison, Lily Gosnear, Susan Hamadock and Suzanne Landon.
