CCA Festival of Trees a big success [Letter]

Editor:

Chesapeake Cancer Alliance would like to thank the sponsors, donors, vendors, volunteers and patrons who supported our 12th Annual CCA Festival of Trees at the Bel Air Armory. It was a very successful Thanksgiving weekend, with the $50,000 proceeds benefiting Cancer LifeNet at the Patricia D. and M. Scot Kaufman Cancer Center at UM Upper Chesapeake Health.
