Sing a song of hope - local caroling tradition brings cheer each year

One neighborhood in Cary has become the centerpiece of a holiday tradition that benefits UNC Lineberger.

L-R: Jay, Debbie, Jennifer, and Michael Hodshon
At the end of their route, carolers went to “cocoa houses” for refreshments and warmth.

The brother and sister team of Michael and Jennifer Hodshon organize the caroling event every year to raise support and funds for UNC Lineberger. Close to 150 students participated in this year's event.

Groups visit houses in the neighborhood to sing, give out candy canes and bookmarks, and share information about UNC Lineberger. After singing, carolers cozy up to treats provided at various "Cocoa Houses."

Michael and Jennifer are the founders of Bookmark My WordIcon indicating that a link will open an external site., a non-profit that sells bookmarks to raise funds for cancer research.
