Berlin, Md. – Sunset Grille’s annual Pink Party – in honor of Hope Palmer donated $3200 of the proceeds from the event in 2017 to the Atlantic General Campaign for the Future.

Palmer is a local cancer survivor who has now been seven years cancer free. 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 Cancer Institute.

“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.
