We are thrilled to announce that Cheers! to Brenner Children’s 2020 raised more than $80,000! Proceeds from this year’s events benefited the Brenner Children’s Patient Assistance Fund, which helps families with travel expenses, medications, meals, bereavement services, home health equipment and much more. Thank you to everyone that supported Brenner Children’s during this uncertain time! Check back for announcements for Cheers! to Brenner Children’s in 2021.

The 16th Annual Cheers! to Brenner Children's looked very different in 2020 due to the pandemic. It began with a live-streamed Virtual Kickoff Party on Thursday, November 5th. What an amazing evening! Our hosts were WGHP Fox8's Chad Tucker and his wife Meredith. They were joined by Kernersville native and country music recording star Chris Lane. Our Cheers! 2020 chairs, Denise and David Hickman and Alissa and Lyn Williams welcomed our viewers and dedicated the evening to all of the patients and families at Brenner Children's. 

Special thanks to the Hickman’s and Williams’ for their dedication to the success of this year’s Cheers!
