It seems that nearly anything in the Tri-State that was scheduled to take place over the next few weeks has either been cancelled or rescheduled out of concern over the spread of the coronavirus. You can now add Chemo Buddies Hopefest to that list.

Originally scheduled for Saturday, April 4th, then Saturday, June 20th, the group's annual fundraiser will now take place on Saturday, September 19th from 8:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. at Friedman Park in Newburgh. Everything planned for the original date will remain.

The new date gives you extra time to register in the event life got in the way and you hadn't had a chance to yet.

Regardless of whether or not you can make it to Hopefest, you can still support Chemo Buddies year-round by becoming a member of their $5 Buck a Month Club. Your monthly donation will help Chemo Buddies continue to provide comfort and support to patients going through chemotherapy treatments in the Tri-State. You can join now through the Chemo Buddies website.
