Sip, Support and Celebrate
A Wine Benefit & Silent Auction Supporting the Chad Welch Memorial Fund
Friday, June 03, 2011
Richland Country Club
1 Club Drive, Nashville
This year’s “Sip, Support and Celebrate” was an affair to remember, featuring a variety of high-end wines complemented by hors d’oeuvres and a silent auction – all while remembering Chad Welch and continuing his fight against cancer by supporting leukemia research through the Chad Welch Memorial Fund.
In June 2007, at 30 years old, Chad Welch lost his courageous battle after being diagnosed only twenty-six months earlier. Throughout his illness, Chad not only fought his own disease, but he also became an advocate for the greater fight against leukemia. Team Chad continues his fight and works to support the Fund through a variety of efforts, including this annual event.
Event guests enjoyed wines supplied by Best Brands and Frugal McDougal, and the evening’s winning bidders took home wine for enjoying later, thanks to generous silent auction donors. The event was a huge success in supporting the mission the Chad Welch Memorial Fund.
“Sip, Support and Celebrate is special to my family of course. It is powerful testimony to a collective desire to fight cancer. Team Chad is help, hope and active support for cancer patients, survivors, victims, and their families and friends who have shared the pain. This event and other Team Chad endeavors allow us to pause periodically in friendship to reflect on Chad's life and meaningfully assist others who share a similar and sometimes uncertain battle. ”
“This event gives me a chance to reflect on Chad’s life and his impact on me, while helping support a cause he was passionate about during his fight against cancer. Our Sip, Support and Celebrate Wine Event along with our other events literally enables Team Chad to continue the fight against cancer that my friend Chad started the day he was diagnosed.”
