Lighthouse Retreats Aid Cancer Families
News

Atlanta- - It is a remarkable idea that helped more than 700 families families deal with childhood cancer.

The Lighthouse Family Retreat founded in 1999 serves children with cancer and their families at Seaside and other beaches along 30-A.

Lighthouse has a simple directive helping kids and their parents to laugh, restore family relationships and find hope in spirituality.

The 2010 Patron's of Hope Dinner was held inside the Doubletree Buckhead-Atlanta Hotel.

Entertainer Jeff Foxworthy was among those in attendance.

The event also recognized the efforts of Atlanta businessman Charles Renfroe who has been a driving force behind the organization.

Each retreat is comprised of approximately 12 retreat families and 30 volunteers who serve the families by cooking, cleaning and taking care of daily responsibilities so that the retreat families can focus on having fun together. 

The retreat season runs from April through October, with 10 retreats scheduled annually. 

For more information on volunteering or if you know a family who is need check out the groups website.
