Champions of Hope Gala:
Friday, November 8th, 2024
What does it take to outsmart cancer? Research. We've invested more than $5 billion in cancer research since 1946 to find more - and better - treatments, uncover factors that may cause cancer, and improve cancer patients' quality of life. Currently in Minnesota, we are funding 10 research processes and investing more than $6.4 million.
We invite you to join us for the 2024 Champions of Hope Gala, hosted by our CEOs Against Cancer of Minnesota Chapter at The Depot. The Fund-A-Need at the event goes directly to operating our Minnesota Hope Lodges in Minneapolis and Rochester. In 2023, we raised over $700,000 thanks to the support of our corporate partners and attendees!
You can learn more about this specific event at www.hopegalamn.org or by contacting ACS Staff Partner Paige Myers at firstname.lastname@example.org. Sponsorships, auction donations, tables, and tickets are available!
