Earlier this month CURE Childhood Cancer had a wonderful time at the 3rd Annual Sisters on a Journey, benefiting our own Catie Wilkins Memorial Fund.

The dinner also welcomed a “Mom’s Table” for local moms of children battling cancer.  The moms’ tickets were sponsored and they were welcomed with a tote filled with goodies in their seat.

The Catie Wilkin’s Memorial Fund committee is very grateful for the support of their community, sponsors, and raffle donors. They are hoping to expand next year and hold two Sisters on a Journey dinners, one in Effingham County, and one in Savannah.  They are already planning to make next year’s event even bigger and better!

Thank you to everybody who was involved in making this event a wonderful success!
