About Scott Brown

Voices H.O.P.E. Scott Brown Seeds of H.O.P.E. AwardScott Brown, who was Vice President and Manager of Fruit and Vegetable Operations at Brown’s Orchards and Farm Market, lost his battle with cancer in 2005. Scott not only planted seeds for a living, he planted seeds of hope for the future. This is symbolized in the award which is crafted in crystal featuring a dove in flight, and includes a core of applewood taken from Brown’s Orchards. The dove is the symbol of H.O.P.E., its outstretched wings reminding us of John Gillespie Magee’s “High Flight.”

“Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth…

and danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings…

put out my hand and touched the face of God.”

2018 Award Recipient

Each year, at its Voices For Hope event H.O.P.E. honors a local individual or group whose work has been instrumental in helping local cancer patients and their families.

This year’s recipient, Pete McGraw, a financial advisor who for over 10 years shared his expertise to H.O.P.E. with the result being our Retreat, a “Vacation from Cancer”.
