Ribbon of Strength and Putting for Purple!

You can help cancer patients who are struggling financially focus on treatment, healing and recovery by donating to the Ribbon of Strength Campaign. This year we are teaming up with Grip & Sip and hosting our event on April 11 at their facility located at 139 W. MacArthur Blvd., in Cottage Hills.

Guests will be able to take part in activities like, “Putting for Purple” as well as a closest to the pin contest on Grip & Sip’s golf simulators.

Proceeds will benefit Alton Memorial Health Services Foundation’s  “You’ve Got a Friend” and “Extra Mile” funds which helps patients pay for essentials and remove barriers that may prevent them from seeking or continuing treatment. Funds can be used for:

  • Gas cards
  • Car repairs and insurance
  • Utility bills
  • Rent and mortgage payments

Our giant Ribbon of Strength will be on display from 4-7 pm at Grip & Sip. Guests can take photos of their portion of the banner with their loved one’s name, an encouraging message they are sending or a business logo.

Deadline for ordering a ribbon is April 1. For more information about the event contact Shannon Fraley in the Development Office at 618-463-7701 or [email protected]

How You Can Help Cancer Patients

You can help cancer patients who are struggling financially, pay for their essentials, which will allow them to focus on treatment, healing, and recovery. The second annual Ribbon of Strength campaign benefits Alton Memorial Health Services Foundation’s You’ve Got a Friend and Extra Mile funds. Your gift helps the Foundation award up to $800 in assistance to each patient to pay for necessities, such as:

  • Gas cards and car repairs to get to treatment
  • Utility bill payments
  • Rent and mortgage payments

During our first campaign, we created a 101-foot ribbon. Together, this year, we can create an even larger symbol. Join us by purchasing a section of ribbon that you can customize to memorialize, honor or show support and encouragement during a patient’s health crisis.

This year’s ribbon will be unveiled on March 22 and pictures will be sent to all participants.

The deadline to purchase is March 10, 2022.
