2017 Fall/ Winter Gifting Program

Gifting Program Nominations Forms Available Here: Fall-Winter Nomination Form

San Luis Obispo & Santa Barbara County cancer patients going through treatment can be nominated to receive one of eight $2500.00 gifts given annually by “Hats for Hope”.

“Hats for Hope” launched its new “Gifting Program” in October 2015 at the Hats for Hope Annual Benefit & Hat Party, asking friends or relatives to nominate qualified candidates for a $2500.00 cash gift from Hats for Hope.

Since 2001, Hats for Hope has been providing central residents with the gift of a hat or wig. Hats for Hope works directly with Central Coast oncology offices between Paso Robles & Santa Ynez to provide each patient going through treatment with a wig certificate valued at $200.00. The certificate is then redeemable at local wig shops.  It is because of the overwhelming generosity of the people and businesses on the Central Coast that we have been able expand the Hats for Hope program to financially assist those going through the cancer.
