On September 16, Memorial Medical Center’s Cancer Services Department presents a new event — Harvest of Hope— inspired by a very popular cancer prevention program held over the last few years.

"We are very excited about this event," said Cheryl Casey, Memorial Medical Center Cancer Services community outreach coordinator. "It will educate, it will inspire behavior change in the area of nutrition and optimal health, and it will honor all of those who work so hard to supply the wonderful harvest we have in our own agricultural community."

Sharon Palmer, RD is a well-known and respected expert on the topic of Plant-Based eating and will be the main speaker. Chef Jesse Laymon will be doing the cooking demo and tasting. Ali Stambaugh from Westurf Nursery will lead the home gardening class. 

"We are gathering lots of wonderful local folks who are providing farm based products to showcase Farmer’s Market-style, as well," said Casey.

After a Social Hour and wine tasting, Ann Endsley from Greens and LaRosa Woodfire Pizza will prepare a beautiful field dinner. Finally, attendees will enjoy a Farmer’s Lounge for a time of relaxing, dessert, and entertainment by The Rykert Trio.  

Harvest of Hope Tickets are $35. To purchase, visit memorialmedicalcenter.org/harvest. For more information, call 209-569-7789.
