The Biennial Hope Ball

Since 1984, the Hope Ball has been held in Greenville and considered the premiere fundraising event for the Neighborhood Cancer Connection. Held every two years, the ball is an elegant, black-tie dinner and dance attended by approximately 600 people. The proceeds go directly to offer hope, help, and healing to local cancer patients. The Hope Ball is returning to Greenville on April 26th, 2024 for the 40th year. It will take place at the 405 Venue with catering by Table 301.

The Neighborhood Cancer Connection provides direct services to thousands of cancer patients and their families. In addition, our individual and group counseling services impact the lives of not only patients but also their family members and the bereaved in our community.


Cancer makes people vulnerable on many levels. While attacking the body, it can drain financial resources, strain caregivers, and overwhelm families. For the past 58 years, the Neighborhood Cancer Connection has provided families from all walks of life with hope, support, financial assistance, counseling services, and up-to-date cancer information. We are not affiliated with any other non-profit or cancer organization and are completely dependent on local donations. All funding comes from the Greenville community and all funding remains in Greenville County.
