This month we are taking a look at Gilda’s Club Nashville, a Nashville-based affiliate of the Cancer Support Community that opened its doors on August 3, 1998. The organization was named in honor of Gilda Radner, who passed from ovarian cancer in 1989.
Their mission is “to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community.”
Gilda’s Club provides a place for people suffering from cancer, their friends, family, and well-wishers to join others like them in a uplifting support network, free of charge. In addition to support and networking, Gilda’s Club offers lectures, educational workshops, and special events.

This year, Allen represented The Huggins Group and participated in Gilda’s Club’s annual Steve Cropper Golf Classic. This event raises money and boosts awareness for Gilda’s Club Nashville. Together, they were able to raise over $82,000 for Gilda’s Club.
We are so glad we are able to show our support for such a wonderful organization. They offer much-needed support and positivity to those whose lives are impacted by cancer. We hope this great organization continues to thrive and grow in the future!
