G Gathering Beacons of Hope Relay for Life Team raises funds and wine glasses for cancer programs

Beacons of Hope Relay for Life Team raises funds and wine glasses for cancer programs



The Beacons of Hope is a local Relay for Life team with members from Isle of Wight and Surry Counties. The group recently raised their glasses, as well as approximately $5,000, during a wine tasting and silent auction held at the Gatling Pointe Yacht Club in Smithfield. Attendees enjoyed heavy hors d'oeuvres, which were then paired with a wide range of white and red wines from all over the world. Proceeds raised during the event will benefit local services and programs of the American Cancer Society.
