A Special Tribute

Hats for Hope Heroes

We have had many fantastic supporters, donors and volunteers who have helped make Hats for Hope possible.  But there are also people who take it one step further – who go out of their way to really make a difference and whose contributions take our event to the next level.  We call those people our Hats for Hope Heroes.  For their stellar support of Hats for Hope and our mission to fight cancer, we are pleased to recognize these special heroes.

Our 2016 Hats for Hope Hero is Whitney Turner Johnston

Whitney was involved with Hats for Hope from the beginning, and she immediately recruited her employer, Accuserv, to be a supporting sponsor.  That Pink Ribbon Sponsorship still exists today and will honor Whitney in 2016.  Over the years, Whitney has generously given her time to contribute in various ways.

Whitney’s outer beauty is matched by her infectious personality, love and compassion for others. She is now married to Robert Johnston, and they have a precious baby girl, Alex.

It is an honor to select Whitney as our 2016 Hats for Hope Hero.
