Sunset Grille, along with Ocean 98.1 FM Radio, D3 Corp, HMRA, and Teasers,
annually host a Pink Party to donate money in honor of Palmer. This year’s
event is scheduled for the 20th of October, 2018 and proceeds will benefit both AGH’s John H. “Jack”
Burbage, Jr. Regional Cancer Care Center and PRMC’s Richard A. Hanson
“I am so thankful that Mr. Burbage and AGH opened a cancer center
in our area. Not everyone is able to travel for treatments and this gives
them access to medical treatment closer to home,” stated Palmer.
