Evening of Remembrance – Wednesday, October 23 from 6pm-8pm

All Gilda’s Club members and their friends and family are welcome to join and remember the people we love who have died due to cancer. All guests are encouraged to bring photos or memorabilia to honor your loved one’s life to place on the Remembrance Tables. RSVP required for yourself AND any guests. This will help us determine how much food to get. Children are welcome.

We know that grief has no timeline. Evening of Remembrance takes place twice a year.  If this timing doesn’t work for you, your loved one can be honored at a future remembrance event.
