This year the American Cancer Society presents CURE! “Raising the Bar Event”, a new annual fundraiser, on Friday, November 1, 2019, at Wynlakes Golf & Country Club in Montgomery. More than 250 guests are expected to attend this exciting and unique event.
Over the past 25 years the American Cancer Society’s gala has been the number one philanthropic event in the Montgomery area. This gala has raised over $6 million to support the ACS mission of saving lives, celebrating lives and leading the fight for a world without cancer. This year is no exception. We are so excited to roll out our new event, which builds upon the success of Vintage Affair, featuring new experiences and expanded opportunities for the community to be involved.
Throughout the evening our distinguished guests will be wowed by the craft movement! Our guests will enjoy an evening of merriment, and delight in the premium crafted spirts. Crafted spirts will include craft beers, bourbons & cocktails, fine wines and gourmet edibles.
The festivities will also include an exciting live performance by the band Chevy 6, the awesome gold-standard of party bands since 1974. The evening will feature exciting live and silent auctions.
According to the American Cancer Society, approximately 1.6 million new cancer cases are expected to be diagnosed in the United States in 2019. More than 600,920 Americans will lose their battle. That’s nearly 1,600 people a day. The American Cancer Society is committed to changing these devastating odds. The good news is, with the help of people like you, cancer death rates have decreased 27% since 1991.
