About Gifts of Hope
Gifts of Hope is a fund created to provide free women’s services at Virginia Gay Hospital and Clinics to those who need financial assistance. It will pay for a clinic visit, testing, and diagnostic analysis of those tests to determine next steps. The money used for the Gifts of Hope has come from many people in the community and beyond.
The Rick Murphy family has donated money to the Foundation for 14 years to help fight cancer, especially breast cancer, from the proceeds of the Murphy Memorial Golf Tournament. In addition to donating to the Foundation, they also donate to the VGH Charity Care fund to help people who need financial assistance with their medical bills.
The Benton County Survivor Group has become instrumental over the past several years in raising funds through their various activities, primarily the Party in Pink 5k race held in June. Through dedicated effort and strong leadership, they have become a real fundraising force in the fight against breast cancer. They got their start when the girls basketball coaches and team, during the 2009-2010 season, decided to honor breast cancer survivors and raise funds for a Coaches against Cancer game. The money was donated to the Foundation and the momentum for the Gifts of Hope has grown from there.
