Cancer of Many Colors (CMC), a Lexington based non-profit, founded by Paulette Criscione, has partnered with Lexington County Recreation & Aging Commission and Golden Hills Country Club to host the Annual Jay Criscione & Family Golf Tournament of Hope. The tournament is an opportunity to help support local cancer survivors with daily living expenses.
The Jay Criscione & Family Golf Tournament of Hope will be Thursday, October 19th at the Gold Hills Golf Club, registration at 11:00 a.m. and shot gun start at Noon.
CMC was inspired from the Criscione family experience and to help bring awareness to all cancers. Most cancers have a color associated with it set by the industry. For the Crisciones, affected by multiple types of cancer the colors pink, burgundy/ivory, kelly green, orange and white became the symbolism and inspiration for Cancer of Many Colors.
The organization’s mission is dedicated to assisting local cancer survivors with their daily living expenses. Funds raised through CMC events will make a difference for local families needing assistance with rent, utilities, transportation to and from treatments, food, children’s needs and immediate family support due to hardship of the cost of cancer.
