Fundraiser for children with cancer has full house

GREEN BAY, Wisconsin (WBAY) — A fundraising event for families of children with cancer had a packed house Friday night.

We’re told 350 people attended the sold-out event at the Riverside Ballroom in Green Bay. Dueling pianos took the place of an event originally scheduled for September last year.

The event aims to raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer after a difficult year for the organization and families.

“2020 was a difficult year for everyone in the world, but families of children with cancer needed to be even more vigilant with their social distancing, staying at home to keep their children safe,” Jan Emmer, president of Families of Children with Cancer, said.

In 2020, the organization increased the amount it could give to families, and it has continued this year.
