The luncheon will welcome keynote speaker Jenna Bush Hager, NBC Today Show correspondent, bestselling author, and daughter and granddaughter of two Presidents of the United States. A fresh voice with a positive message, Jenna is a humanitarian and chair of UNICEF'S Next Generation as well as an editor-at-large for Southern Living Magazine. She shows how lives can be changed when provided with compassion, community support and opportunity.

All proceeds raised from the 2018 Shop The Day Away Luncheon will benefit local children, women and men cancer patients who reside in Palm Beach county during their cancer treatment period. Cancer Alliance of Help and Hope eases the burden for qualified children, women and men cancer patients with emergency circumstances by helping to support them financially during their cancer treatment period, and providing information, guidance and resources to those in need. Due to the high cost of cancer treatment and the severity of the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation, many cancer patients suffer financial setbacks, and depend on Cancer Alliance for support during their most difficult times to ease their burden.
