To raise money for cancer patients and their families, the UVA Cancer Center is auctioning off 100 wreaths decorated by their employees.

Each wreath was decorated with a different theme. For instance, some of the wreaths were decked in blue and orange colors, carrying a pair of UVA basketball tickets. While other wreaths were donated in honor of a cancer survivor and filled with children’s toys.

Kathy Degregory, the wreath auction chair says, "Seeing people come through and just marvel at the talent and the beauty of these wreaths, it brings joy just walking down the hallway, but knowing that we're doing something to help our patients is really the most special of all.”

Last year, the Cancer Center raised $5,000 and is hoping to surpass that this year.

The wreaths are on display in the lobby of the UVA Cancer Center and bidding is set to kick off at noon Friday, Nov. 30, and closes Thursday, Dec. 6 at 8 p.m.
