American Cancer Society Black and White Gala

We are excited to announce the Third Annual American Cancer Society Black and White Gala presented by LHC Group and Event Rental. Our two previous galas were truly a unique combination of the glamour, upheld the true mission of creating a world with more birthdays, and was an overall fun atmosphere. From the décor to the food to the evening’s Spirit of Hope Honorees, the event is still the talk of the town!
Our third event is already slatted to top our first two. Since October, the Gala Committee has been hard at work planning this event, but we need your company’s support to reach our goal. This year, more people than ever will survive cancer and fewer will hear the words “you have cancer.” Although we have made tremendous strides, cancer is still a disease that affects almost every person in every community in some way.
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!
We hope to see you there!
