The Lonon Foundation is a Charleston-based 501 (C)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to help children affected by their parent’s or caregiver’s cancer diagnosis find comfort, heal and grow from their shared experiences.  The foundation was established in 2016 by Anna Lonon in memory of her late husband Mike who lost his life to head and neck cancer at the age of 32.

This FUNraising event is being hosted by Colleen Underriner and all proceeds will be donated to the Lonon Foundation to support their UPLIFT program (Using Play, Love, Inspiration and Friendship as Therapy), co-founded by College of Charleston students, Dari Goldman, Alyssa Gallo and McKenzie Wofford. These programs are offered at no cost to children ages 5-17 who are struggling with their loved one’s cancer diagnosis.
