More than 450 attendees are expected and will include corporate sponsors, business, philanthropic and social leaders, underwriters and guests. Guests are encouraged to wear festive Pink & Black attire.
Your participation in the Pink & Black Tie Gala will help to ensure that the American Cancer Society can continue to save lives. The American Cancer Society is the only charitable organization to fight cancer on all fronts. The Society invests donations in programs to help people stay well, get well, find cures and fight back. It continues to be the largest non-government source of cancer funding with outstanding results. Virtually every major cancer breakthrough in the past 60 years can be traced to the Society, and 45 researchers funded early in their careers have gone on to win the Nobel Prize.
Gala proceeds fund direct support services to Brooklyn cancer patients and their families as well as the American Cancer Society’s national life-saving research. The Brooklyn Office of the American Cancer Society will meet the complex and challenging needs of more than 4,000 families in the borough facing cancer this year.
