HADLEY, Mass. (WWLP) – Greenfield Savings Bank is holding a fundraiser to benefit Cancer Connection. 

The event is being held at Greenfield Savings Bank located at 140 Russell Street (Route 9) on Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Vice President of Business Development and Director of Philanthropy at Greenfield Savings Bank Tara Brewster is hosting the Bed-in event with furnishings provided by Andy’s Oak Shoppe. Watch the event live on Facebook.

The driving mission has stayed the same, to help fund a local organization aimed at supporting people struggling with cancer.

“We know the cost of healthcare is out of control right now and a lot of people can’t make ends meet, especially with services that weren’t expected like a cancer diagnosis or treatments,” said Brewster.

Cancer Connection offers free, nonmedical programs and services for people facing cancer and their families and caregivers. To donate, visit the Hadley location for music, food from local businesses, surprises, special guests, and more. You can also donate online or call 774-272-4366.

Monte Belmonte, who retired as the host of Mornings with Monte on 93.9 The River, retired in December. He held the Bed-In event for 17 years to raise awareness and funds.
