The annual Fun and Fashion for the Cure event held October 24 was the most successful ever — resulting in a $5,000 donation to Victory in the Valley. All funds will be used for the benefit of cancer patients in Harvey County.

In 2017, volunteers have made 2,926 visits with patients currently in treatment and provided 109 newly diagnosed patients with a comfort bag containing items to lessen the discomfort of treatment. Funds are also used for the cancer support group which meets monthly in Newton.  The proceeds of this year's event will allow that work to continue.
