The American Cancer Society has been fighting cancer and saving lives since 1913. The Evening of Hope gala allows the Society to continue saving lives and creating a world with less cancer and more birthdays by helping people stay well and get well, by finding cures and by fighting back.
On Saturday, June 23, 2012 at 6:00pm, you and other community leaders can enjoy one of the area’s premier black-tie events during an exciting evening filled with an elegant dinner, late-night dancing, a spectacular auction, and much more! 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!
Let's join together to save lives... even if it takes all night!
