Recipe for Hope—Local Celebrities Serve Cuisine for Cancer Charity


Culinary delights prepared by local celebrities, a “pink-tini” bar, live music and a silent auction will combine to create a memorable evening for a wonderful cause as Hair Peace Charities hosts its 7th annual Recipe for Hope fundraiser. The event will begin at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, February 11th at the Mayernik Center on Camp Horne Road.

Hair Peace Charities is a nonprofit organization founded in 2005 by Bonny Diver, a local radio personality and a breast cancer survivor. Its mission is to support local women fighting cancer by providing them with the $150 that one wig costs. Hair Peace also offers support through a prayer network and a support circle focusing on healthy options in the long term life battle over cancer.

“Recipe for Hope promises to be a fun and meaningful evening for all of our guests,” says Diver. “As a cancer survivor myself, I encourage anyone who has a soft spot in their hearts for women who have undergone cancer treatment to come out and support this premier event.”
