Kosair Charities is thrilled to be the beneficiary of the 2017 Hats for Hope.
Hats for Hope began in 2004 when a handful of volunteers from KFC, YUM! Brands, Inc., Unified Foodservice Purchasing Co-op, LLC and Golden State Foods were looking for a way to raise funds and awareness for the fight against breast cancer. Twelve years later, Hats for Hope – a silent auction of hundreds of new, designer and gently worn Derby hats as well as a variety of other gift packages – draws hundreds each year to an event of support and celebration.
The 2016 Hats for Hope event raised over $43,000,which will help Kosair Charities expand our support for children’s cancers. This will also help us to insure that Hats for Hope continues for many years into the future.
The Hats for Hope volunteers hope that one day their efforts will no longer be needed because there will be a cure for all cancers.
