Fundraiser for children with cancer has full house

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) – An event raising money for Families of Children with Cancer had a full house Friday night.

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

The event is meant to raise awareness as well as funds for pediatric cancer after a difficult year for the organization and families.

“2020 was a rough year for everybody in the world, but for families of children who have cancer they had to be even more vigilant with their social distancing, staying home keeping their children safe,” Jan Emmer, president of Families of Children with Cancer, said.

In 2020, the organization increased the amount of funding it was able to give families, and it’s continued that this year.
