The Spirit of Hope Celebration is hosted by the Board of Ambassadors, a group of individuals and business leaders in northeast Pennsylvania who have come together to raise funds & awareness to fight cancer in the local community through their support and promotion of a gala event.  The celebration raises money for the Northeast Regional Cancer Institute’s Patient Navigation Program, which helps low income individuals in northeast Pennsylvania access direct cancer related health-care services.  Over the past three years, the event has raised more than $100,000 for the Northeast Regional Cancer Institute.
