ACS 100th anniversary fundraiser (March 30)

MEDIA RELEASE

The American Cancer Society – Hawaii Island hosts “Hope Gala – Hawaii” on March 30 at the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel, in celebration of the organization’s 100th birthday.

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.”

Hope Gala – Hawaii is planned as a “Hawaii-elegant” evening of dining, entertainment, a silent and live auction, 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.

Individual tickets ($100 per person) and reserved tables for 10 ($1,250) may be purchased by calling the ACS-Hawaii Office at 808-935-0025.

For more information about the event or sponsorship details, please contact Maile Lincoln- Carvalho at 895-3168 or at maile.carvalho@cancer.org.
