The purpose is to provide those families with help to ease the financial hardships that come with battling childhood cancer.

This will be the 10th year for the event.

Tammi Vasquez started “Circle the Wagons” when her daughter was looking for a way to help a friend who was diagnosed with cancer.

The event has continued to grow since then.

The event is well-supported in the childhood cancer community. Ruben Arias, father of Abigail Arias, is a board member.

The public is invited to attend the fundraiser, which takes place March 24 and 25. It will be held at the Brazoria County Fairgrounds in Angleton.
