November 18, 2015 Christopher Hope

Major Memphis landmarks were glowing especially bright on Saturday, September 2nd, and for a great reason!
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and gold is the official color for the cause.

"Light it Gold Memphis" was the first event of its kind presented by the Chris Hope Foundation.

The Liberty Bowl, Bass Pro Shops, Hard Rock Cafe, Memphis International Airport and the Crowne Plaza were all lit GOLD.

The event was created to bring together and uplift families of children battling cancer in the Memphis community.
Chris Hope, the event organizer, said only four percent of the National Cancer Institute's budget goes to childhood cancer research.
