KISS Cancer Goodbye is a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. The first year of the event was 2022 and was held in Nashville, TN at SIR Studios. This event exceeded all of our expectations with over $40,000 donated to the American Cancer Society.
This year, KISS Cancer Goodbye will be relocated to Sarasota, Fl. on the weekend of October 13-14th, 2023. It will include live music on Fri. and Sat. night as well music, comedy and other activities on Saturday afternoon. The weekend will also be interlaced with charitable raffles and other fundraising activities. In order to maximize charitable fundraising, the event will include both in person viewing and live streaming during portions of the event.
This year we challenged ourselves to find ways to not only increase our fundraising results, but we also want to provide more education about cancer risks and create a stronger message about the importance of getting checked for early signs of cancer.
For 2023, the Harvest House of Sarasota will be presenting KISS Cancer Goodbye. Neil Davis, Brian Bell and Dale Walter will be working directly with the Harvest House to assist in making the event a big success. Harvest House is a long standing, highly regarded not-for-profit organization in Sarasota, Fl. that provides housing and recovery programs for vets, battered women and other individuals in need. They also operate the Harvest Church which is a non-denomination religious organization.
KISS Cancer Goodbye will be held on Harvest House campus located at 3650 17th Street, Sarasota, Fl. In early 2023, Harvest completed construction of its new state of the art community center adjacent to its existing facility called the Venue. It includes an elevated stage, high-end PA system, advanced lighting system, 16 ft video wall and built in live streaming package.
