The big red door opens on the Gilda's Club Evansville. After months of planning and hard working, the organization officially opens to the community.

The Gilda's Club held its grand opening tonight on Vogel Rd. The group is an affiliate of the Cancer Support Community, as it dedicates its efforts to helping people impacted by cancer. And it now has the venue to help in its endeavors.

"They can come here and they can find support," said Executive Director Melanie Atwood. "They can find hope. They can find laughter. And what that means to them and their family and what it means to us to share that journey with them is priceless."
