A complete list of auction items can be found on the DCH Foundation, Inc. Facebook page. The live music at the event will be provided by the John Martin Davis Band. The Alabama-based band was nearly a contender on American Idol this past year.
“They made it all the way to Hollywood,” Molly Ingram, DCH vice president of development, said. “They really are a lot of fun.”
Funds raised from Nite on the Green will go to the DCH Foundation’s breast cancer fund. The fund advocates for a comprehensive approach to reducing breast cancer rates through awareness and several different preventative measures.
“Our funds help provide mammograms and additional testing to uninsured or underprivileged women,” Casey Johnson, DCH director of development, said. “We also provide wigs and prostheses, as well as support to women diagnosed with breast cancer.”
In addition to Nite on the Green at Cypress Inn Pavilion, the foundation is also throwing a charity tennis event and golf tournament this week as part of their Pink series fundraising events.
“Our goal for all the events together is to put $100,000 in the fund,” Ingram said.
Tickets for Nite on the Green can be found at thedchfoundation.org.
