Be a Champion in the Fight Against Cancer! Please join the American Cancer Society to save lives and create a world with more birthdays.
Saturday, November 10th, 2018
5PM: VIP reception
6PM: Cocktail Hour
Join us at the American Cancer Society’s Champions of Hope on November 10th for a great night! Great food, dancing, a spectacular auction, and much more, provide for this premier event to be one of a kind. And as we come together to party for a cause, the American Cancer Society will continue to save lives and create more birthdays by helping people to stay well and get well, find cures, and fight back against a disease that has taken too many lives.
For nearly a century, the American Cancer Society has fought for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. By taking what we’ve learned through research and turning it into what we do, we have contributed to a 15 percent decrease in the overall cancer death rate between the early 1990s and 2005. That means that we helped avoid about 650,000 cancer deaths and created the potential for more birthday celebrations. Overall, 11 million cancer survivors in America will celebrate a birthday this year. Now that’s a reason to party, so join us!
We hope to see you there!
