2022 Garden of Hope Honorees

On Friday, September 29, 2023, the American Cancer Society along with chairs, Stacey and Travis Turley will host the 21st annual Knoxville Hope Gala. Over the past 2 decades, more than 3.5 million dollars has been raised to fund life-changing research for those who have been touched by cancer.


In celebration of the success of 2022, the Hope Gala is excited to bring the Garden of Hope back for another year! The Garden of Hope will represent a celebration of those who have encountered the disease, whether in remission, currently in treatment or sadly no longer with us. The garden will honor their journeys. Please join us to help illuminate how far we've come in cancer care, treatment, and prevention, as well as how far we have to go. 

Your donation of $1,000 supports the Society's vision to create a world without fear of a cancer diagnosis for our future generations and includes:
