The 40th Hope Ball Raises a Total of $704,000 in One Night!

In a celebration marked by elegance and generosity, the 40th Hope Ball illuminated Greenville on Friday April 26th, 2024. This biennial event benefiting the Neighborhood Cancer Connection raised over $704,000 in a single night, marking the largest amount ever raised in the history of the Hope Ball.

Since 1984, the Hope Ball has been held in Greenville and is considered the premiere fundraising event for the Neighborhood Cancer Connection. Held every two years, the elegant, black-tie dinner and dance took place at the 405 Venue and was attended by 522 people with over 44 sponsors. It was a spectacular event with catering by Table 301, cocktails from Breakthru Beverage and Six and Twenty Distillery, along with live music from the Atlantic Party Fantastics. 

Thank you to our sponsors listed below. Without them, the Hope Ball wouldn’t have been possible!

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.

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.
