According to WLBZ, Patrick Dempsey still feels great sense of pride when it comes to his hometown of Lewiston Maine and genuinely cares about the area's well being. He spoke today at the Lewiston Auburn Chamber of Commerce breakfast for a crowd of 200. He delved into the importance of making the area a year round attraction so businesses will want to open there and therefore boost the local economy. He also spoke about his upcoming Dempsey Challenge. This challenge is three day running, walking or biking event and is the biggest fundraiser for the Patrick Dempsey Center of Cancer Hope and Healing. Go here for registration information!


It is great to see someone like Dempsey using his platform for a good cause and connecting with his roots.
