Last month, Cancer Hope Network hosted the  Chrysalis Gala, honoring longtime volunteer Joseph J. DePalma, Esq. Joe was recognized for his decades of service and extraordinary commitment to helping people facing cancer. (Read more about his volunteer work here.) 

“We were thrilled to be able to honor Joe this year. He is so deserving for all that he does to help move along Cancer Hope Network’s mission of hope,” said Randibeth Gallant, Associate Director of Special Events. “The evening flowed with a warm vibe and exciting music, reminiscent of pre-covid galas.” 

The fundraising event was a chance to debut our “Give Help. Get Help.” video, featuring interviews with Cancer Hope peer mentor and client. It was underwritten by Jay & Brad, in honor of Nancy McGarvey and we are incredibly grateful for their support. 

We are also thankful to this year’s sponsors – including our presenting sponsor Lite, DePalma, Greenberg & Afanador. See our digital ad journal here and enjoy photos from the evening here.  

The event was chaired by CHN trustee and longtime volunteer Lori Roth.
