Dancing for Gold® 2025

How Your Support Makes a Difference

Children cannot be treated for cancer in Western Kentucky or Southern Illinois and must travel at least 2 1/2 hours or farther out of town. With the support of our donors, Book for Hope, Inc. will continue giving an emergency envelope and paying monthly bills for families with a child on cancer treatment. Children in our region go all over the USA for cancer treatment. When a child is diagnosed with cancer, a parent/parents will have to stop working to stay with them at the hospital or care for them at home, which puts a financial strain on the family. In addition, children only receive 4% of funding from the Federal Government for cancer research, and adults receive 96% of funding for cancer research. Also, your support will allow us to continue to give 32% to childhood cancer research…..because kids matter.


Book for Hope®, Inc., a local childhood cancer organizationwill host our 4th Annual Dancing for Gold® gala event on March 22, 2025 at the Paducah Convention Center from 6:00 p.m. through 10:00 p.m.

The doors will open at 5:00 p.m. So, get ready to help change the face of pediatric cancer while having a great time!  We are grateful for our dancers fundraising for their $20,000.00 goal and getting Corporate Sponsors. Also, we are thankful to have Ashley and Dr. Pam Thurman as our dance directors again this year.
