Patti Pennington and friends declare, ‘Cancer Won’t Win’

The non-profit Now Faith Community Development Corporation recently hosted a live gospel performance by Patti Pennington at The Space entertainment arena.

Pennington — who has earned fame for powerhouse performances at the House of Blues Gospel Brunch — sang for an intimate audience to benefit the charity Cancer Won’t Win. It was a night to remember: the set was recorded for a live album, cancer survivors were recognized, a private auction was held, and guests were met with a red carpet hosted by Jeremy Washington.

The motto of Cancer Won’t Win is, “Winners never quit and a quitter never wins,” says Pennington. “The event’s objective was to encourage and show strength during a cancer battle. I was also so happy to introduce my new wig line, in honor of my mother, called the Patti Jean Wig & Extension Collection. I just want to thank everyone who participated in the gala — and who came out to enjoy a victorious night to remember while helping cancer survivors win.”
