The Glenna Kohl Fund for Hope, Inc. will host the 1st Annual “Piggy Roast” to raise funds for melanoma awareness and the dangerous effects of overexposure to sunlight and tanning.

The event honors Glenna Kohl, a lifelong resident of Marston’s Mills, who sadly lost her battle with melanoma, the fastest growing cancer in the US and the second leading cause of death in women ages 25-28. Approximately 63,000 cases of melanoma are being diagnosed yearly, and it is the second most common cancer for women 25-29 years old.

The 1st Annual Piggy Roast will be a family-friendly event held at the Lorusso Lodge at Flax Pond in Yarmouth and will raise money to:

  • Fund melanoma research at Massachusetts General Hospital
  • Build community shade structures on Cape Cod
  • Protect residents and tourists with donated sun screen dispensers in public spaces
