​Book for Hope® Hosts Third Annual Dancing for Gold® Event​

On Saturday, March 18, Book for Hope® hosted their third annual Dancing for Gold® event, which is their largest fundraiser of the year. This event is not only successful in fundraising, it is a special, touching event that not only impacts the lives of the children and families who benefit, but also every person that attends.  

 This year was a tremendous success, as there were over 25,000 donations and over $257,000 was raised, close to double the amount of last year. The night was special and fun for those involved who enjoyed dinner, the dance competition, the live band, and the leisure time spent on the dance floor.  

Bobby Davidson, the sheriff of Livingston County, won the dance competition, as well as the award for crowd favorite. Book for Hope® is “thankful to every sponsor and person that donated to the event” as well as “each dancer, instructors, volunteers and clean-up crews.”  

We are excited to see what the fourth annual Dancing for Gold® event can do, and make sure to be on the lookout for any upcoming Book for Hope® fundraisers; this charity is life changing. 

Book for Hope® Inc. is a local charity organization that hosts fundraising events and spreads awareness for childhood cancer. Book for Hope’s mission is to financially assist families in need that have a child battling cancer in Western Kentucky and Southern Illinois in order to positively impact their lives.  

They also donate to childhood cancer research and raise awareness around the small percentage of the cancer research budget that is allocated to childhood cancer, which is unfortunately only 4%. Because of the organization’s dedication to raising awareness, Kentucky was the first state to gift to childhood cancer research and has donated over 22.5 million to it.
