Berlin, Md. – Sunset Grille’s annual Pink Party – in honor of Hope Palmer donated $6010.00 of the proceeds from the event to the John H. “Jack” Burbage, Jr. Regional Cancer Care Center and the Atlantic General Campaign for the Future.

Palmer is a local cancer survivor who has now been cancer-free for eight years. Sunset Grille, along with Ocean 98.1 FM Radio, D3 Corp, HMRA, Ocean City Today, and Teasers, annually host a Pink Party to donate money in honor of Palmer. This year’s event was held on the 19th of October.

“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.
