Did you know that 1.4 million people will be diagnosed with cancer this year? Maybe you know someone who has cancer or is receiving treatment — a friend, relative or a coworker. And it’s possible they travel to central Arkansas where a number of the nation’s premier cancer treatment facilities are located. Being far away from the comforts of home during this challenging time can be both frightening and frustrating. That’s why the 20th Century Club’s Lodge was founded — to make a difference in the lives of patients by giving hope away from home.

In a typical year, the 20th Century Club’s Lodge provides about 1,500 nights of no-cost housing to more than 240 patients. Our Lodge is more than a place to stay — it is a caring, compassionate environment that builds a bridge of hope over a chasm of worry. We are hope away from home for our patients.

Having met and exceeded our Capital Campaign goal of 3 Million dollars, We will be having our Grand Opening Ceremony of the new 18,000 square foot 20th Century Club's Lodge that will provide no-cost housing to cancer patients while they are undergoing treatment in Little Rock.

Our Grand Opening Ceremony is on May 19 at 11 a.m.  The Lodge is located at 4011 Maryland (on the corner of Cedar and Maryland) in Little Rock.

Building and operating a new lodge will take a great deal of teamwork from members, volunteers, patrons, corporate sponsors and individual donors. That’s why we are asking you to join us in building Hope Away From Home. And, the 20th Century Club's Lodge is proud to say that more than 98% of the funds raised go directly to support its mission of providing no-cost lodging, support and education for cancer patients undergoing treatment in Little Rock.

We are asking you to get involved to help collect some of the following items for our patients to enjoy.  Get your business involved!  Have a company donation drive. 

We are currently collecting gently used or new items for our patients to use while at the Lodge and while the are having treatments. 

I-Pods, CD Players, CD's and DVD's

Paperback books of all kinds (romance, mystery, legal dramas, inspirational, historical, sports related, etc)

Our patients will be able to borrow these items during their stay! 

We are also registered at Bed Bath & Beyond http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/regGiftRegistry.asp?wrn=%2D616267116& for our lodge dishes if you or your company would like to make a donation.
