40th Hope Ball raises over $704,000 in a single night 

May 14, 2024

In a celebration marked by elegance and generosity, the 40th Hope Ball illuminated Greenville on Friday April 26th, 2024. This biennial event benefiting the Neighborhood Cancer Connection raised over $704,000 in a single night, marking the largest amount ever raised in the history of the Hope Ball.

Held for the first time at The 405 Venue with catering by Table 301, 522 guests and over 44 sponsors gathered to raise money for the newly-branded Neighborhood Cancer Connection, formerly the Greenville Cancer Society, which provides financial, nutritional, and counseling support to area cancer patients. With cocktails from Breakthru Beverage and Six and Twenty Distillery and live music from the Atlantic Party Fantastics, it was a spectacular event.

Since 1984, the Hope Ball has demonstrated the power of giving by the Greenville community. A now tradition in the Greenville calendar, this year marked a significant milestone as the Hope Ball celebrated its 40th anniversary of this special event.

Held every two years, the Hope Ball is an elegant, black-tie dinner and dance. The glamorous event is organized by a dedicated team of 50 largely female volunteers and provides two years of operational funding for the Neighborhood Cancer Connection, which has helped over 2,000 cancer patients and their families.

44 sponsors helped to make this year’s event truly remarkable. Special mentions go out to Gastroenterology Associates, Interim Healthcare, ProSource, Prisma, Bon Secours, Gibbs Cancer Center and the William Pearce Family.
