Harvest Celebration Dinner & Silent Auction

Harvest Dinner

 Check back soon for any virtual opportunities...

Quonquont Farm Whately, MA

Rob Watson and Patrick Viteri were our hosts once again for a wonderful evening of gourmet fare accompanied by the fabulous music of Jazz Sketches. The evening included a silent auction featuring a wide variety of items from local businesses and supporters including gift certificates, household items, get-a-ways, hand-crafted art and so much more - all to benefit Cancer Connection. 


 Thank you to all of our 2019 sponsors!

The last Cancer Connection Camp Out and Grateful Dead Thunderdome was held Feb. 26-27, 2020. Monte was tortured, or serenaded depending on your opinion of the Grateful Dead, with their music while inside his very own "thunderdome."

Thank you for being there for your friends and neighbors facing cancer. 

Please help us thank our challengers, especially our Champion challenger, Greenfield Savings Bank!
