ROME, Ga. – Area artists, florists, garden clubs, businesses, interior designers and creative individuals have joined Harbin Clinic’s Tony E. Warren, MD Cancer Center to create and sell original holiday wreaths to benefit Cancer Navigators, a Rome-based charity which provides one-on-one services to cancer patients.
Original, masterpiece wreaths created by generous members of the community are now on display at the Harbin Clinic Cancer Center and Floyd Medical Center’s Art Exhibit Area during the month of November. Janice Hopkins, director of the Harbin Clinic Cancer Center invites everyone to view the wreaths and participate in a silent auction. The silent auction and newly offered online auction ends at 1 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 30 with the highest bidder winning the wreath.
“This is the first time we’ve offered an online option, which will provide bidders a convenient way to bid and monitor the activity for their favorite wreaths online. The auction site is http://cancernavigatorsga.org/wreath-auction/,” Hopkins says. “This is the fifth year we’ve hosted this festive event, and it gets bigger and better each year. We have more than 60 unique Christmas wreaths this year. Each wreath will be identified by the name of the person, club or business that created it. It’s amazing how the community has embraced this project. Admission to the Cancer Center to view the wreaths is free.”
Cancer Navigators, a local not-for-profit organization, works closely with the Harbin Clinic Cancer Center to provide needed services for cancer patients. Cancer Navigators works with patients to guide them through treatment and to help them with the emotional and family stress of cancer treatment. Cancer Navigators often helps patients obtain a wide range of services from government and social agencies in the community.
