THE HEIMERDINGER FOUNDATION ANNOUNCES UPCOMING FUNDRAISING EVENTS

Annual Drive for Dinger and Hope for Healing planned for June 14-15

The Heimerdinger Foundation, a nonprofit organization providing nutrient-rich meals and education, free of charge, for families facing cancer, announces annual fundraising events Drive for Dinger and Hope for Healing to be held June 14 and 15, respectively.
The weekend of fundraising begins Friday, June 14, at 9:00 am, at Vanderbilt Legends Club in Franklin, Tenn. where the Foundation will hold its 8th Annual Drive for Dinger to raise funds in support of its signature Meals 4 Health and Healing program. The single shot-gun tournament features a light breakfast before tee-off and an awards lunch afterwards.
The following evening, June 15, at 6:00 pm, The Heimerdinger Foundation will host their Annual Hope for Healing Dinner and Auction at Nissan Stadium Club to raise funds in support of the Meals 4 Health and Healing program. The evening will offer a silent and live auction, dinner, and beautiful views of Nashville’s skyline. To find out more or to purchase tickets for both events, visit hfmeals.org.
Meals 4 Health and Healing, the signature program of The Heimerdinger Foundation, is a heart-centered, caring community preparing organic, immune-boosting, and anti-inflammatory meals free of charge for cancer patients undergoing cancer treatment and their caregivers. Since 2013, the nonprofit has served over 75,000 meals to hundreds of clients and their caregivers in Williamson and Davidson County.
Research shows that nearly 80% of cancer patients end up malnourished as a result of cancer treatment. Consuming nourishing meals can make a vital difference to cancer patients as they fight their illness and heal from treatment. With an emphasis on serving those who are in crisis, who have little or no caregiving support, or who are financially unable to provide themselves with nutritious foods, the program elevates the recovery process for many who may be at high risk for malnutrition, which can slow down or stop treatment.
“We’ve seen first-hand the incredible burden that cancer places on families,” shares foundation Executive Director, Katharine Ray. “Managing medical appointments, the stress of the disease, treatment and its side effects–patients don’t have time to shop for and prepare nutritious meals to promote healing. We believe that ‘food is medicine’ and our mission is to provide hope and healing during an incredibly difficult time.”
In addition, with over 250 active teen and adult volunteers participating in their program each year, the organization educates those volunteers about eating a “whole food” diet to reduce inflammation and to reduce the likelihood of chronic, inflammatory conditions like cancer. By educating patients, their families, and the adult and teen volunteers who provide the giving hands and hearts behind the organization’s mission, The Heimerdinger Foundations is transforming the health and nutritional choices of countless people in middle Tennessee.

Being poorly nourished worsens side effects, reduces the effectiveness of or can stop treatment, and lengthens recovery time once treatment ends.
