The Russel Hill Cancer Foundation held a White Linen and Wine fundraiser on February 16, 2013, at Clearview Cancer Institute. The event, which raised more than $75,000, honored cancer survivors Anne Boles and Michael Worley.

More than 350 attended the 5th annual event. Guests enjoyed an upscale wine tasting, catering by Lyn’s Gracious Goodness, live music by Replay Band, as well as live and silent auctions.

Donna Johnson, executive director of the Foundation, and Jim Harris formed the idea for the event in 2009 when additional funding was needed to support the work of the Foundation. “At that time, Jim owned the Wine Cellar and was an obvious resource for the Wine Tasting Committee for this upscale wine tasting event,” according to Johnson.
