Pars and a Purpose for Children’s Cure

Sat Oct 22 at 02 pm @ Crane Lakes Golf And Country Club, 1850 Crane Lakes Blvd, Port Orange

Fundraiser for St. Jude Children’s Hospital Luncheon and Dance 2-6+ p.m. on October 22, 2022, provided and hosted by Rose Villa Restaurant.


David Vanvalkenburgh is raising funds to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital’s lifesaving mission of finding cures for children battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases, and he needs your help to reach his fundraising goal.

How your donation helps:

Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. We won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats, and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands of more children.

For more information, contact Dave Van at 386-383-3120.
