American Cancer Society to celebrate 100 years
The American Cancer Society-Hawaii Island will present a “Hope Gala-Hawaii” in celebration of the organization’s 100th birthday on March 30 at the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel in South Kohala.
The event will raise funds to save more lives through local patient programs and services, cutting-edge research, education and advocacy.
“We all know someone whose life has been touched by cancer,” said Maile Lincoln-Carvalho, community manager of income development, ACS-Hawaii Island. “We also know how much courage, strength and determination it takes to deal with this disease.
“‘Hope Gala-Hawaii’ celebrates not only our century-long fight to cure cancer, but the indomitable spirit of those who have struggled to survive it.”
The event is being planned as a “Hawaii-elegant” evening of dining, entertainment, silent and live auctions, fun-filled mystery gift boxes and recognition of special donors and sponsors who support local patient programs and services on Hawaii Island.
Most importantly, however, it will honor the lives of survivors and the memory of those who have succumbed to the disease, said Lincoln-Carvalho.
Tickets are $100 per person, with reserved tables for 10 costing $1,250. To purchase them, call the ACS-Hawaii Office at 935-0025. Individual and corporate sponsorships and auction items are welcomed.
For more information about the event or sponsorship details, please contact Lincoln-Carvalho at 895-3168 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
