Into the Grey – A Fundraiser for Brain Cancer Research
May 26, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Come out and celebrate life and survival!
“Into The Grey” is a fundraising event benefiting brain cancer research, hosted by Jessi Lloyd of the Grey Collective and the OT Circus. There will be a silent auction, a raffle, live entertainment, sidewalk games, a food truck and lots of fun. We hope to see you there!
Jessi Lloyd is a proud mother to 3 little ladies, and one little stud muffin. Wife to an incredibly supportive husband, and the founder and hatter with Grey Collective Hats.
Along with inspiring slower, more intentional living through traditional hat making, her hopes with having created the Grey Collective is that one day there will be a cure for all types of brain cancer. The name Grey Collective was thoughtfully created for a couple of reasons:
1. Jessi’s married name Lloyd translates to “The Grey”.
2. Her husband has an incurable form of brain cancer, and grey happens to be the color for brain cancer awareness. She has taken on a personal mission to help find a cure for brain cancer, by advancing the countries most promising researchers. Jessi is a creative maker, she has the ability to build things with her own two hands. She is determined to use those skills to financially back those that can and will find a cure for brain cancer. That is why 20% of all of her profits are donated to brain cancer research.
Currently there are an estimated 688,096 people in the United States living with a brain tumor.

The Ivy Center treats thousands of patients with complex, difficult-to-treat brain tumors. Our commitment is to create a place where brain tumor patients and their families have access to the best care and the latest clinical research available.
