Steeped in history and inspired by the Vintage Affair event, the mission of the 2nd annual CURE! is simple: to raise money for cancer research, education, advocacy and service - to benefit patients, survivors, and their families.
We look forward to your participation and are excited for you to join us for our first virtual event ever! We will be back together again soon and our first priority is your safety and to ensure during this unprecedented time everyone will be able to support our mission and enjoy the fun!
The American Cancer Society funds millions for research projects that are in fear of being lost due to the COVID-19. Funds raised at this event will support our Research programs and patient service programs such as Road to Recovery, Wig Vouchers, our 24-hour call center and other essential support programs.
Who hasn’t been touched by cancer? If you’re reading this page, chances are you’ve either lost a loved one, cared for a friend, or you are cheering on someone dear to you who has been happily “branded” a survivor!
Please join us, with the community of business leaders, health-care professionals and pioneering citizens, as together we have a "VISION 2020 for a world WITHOUT CANCER” in support of the American Cancer Society on October 8, 2020, and register now at the top of this page. Together we can leave cancer in the dust.
This year we are joined by Mia Mothershed and Jere Bealsey as ambassadors for the American Cancer Society, showing there strong efforts as leaders in our fight to Attack Cancer From Every Angle.
We look forward to you joining us
CURE! 2020 committee
Mark your calendars! Year two of the American Cancer Society’s (ACS) spectacular annual fundraiser, CURE! VISION 2020, is scheduled for October 8, 2020, and is shaping up to again be the number one philanthropic event in the River Region. Even better, it’s virtual this year, which means that so many more people can participate, and greater emphasis can be placed on the ACS mission and those who benefit from the fundraising proceeds.
Aside from raising the critical funds to support the ACS mission, the first priority is the health and safety of our volunteers and supporters which include cancer survivors and patients. Therefore, the CURE! Committee has worked to develop the best virtual event possible, which will be widely available to all interested parties and will be experienced in bold new ways.
While circumstances dictate that we will be face-to-face again soon, ACS and the CURE! Committee still encourage people to join the celebration in a virtual-distance celebration like none other—exciting, virtual entertainment, LIVE and SILENT auctions, and the opportunity to hear from local celebrities and guest speaker Attorney Jere Beasley and honree Mia Mothershed.
Last year’s event greatly exceeded expectations, and the challenge to make this year even better has been accepted, with opportunities to experiment in a new entertainment venue that brings the fun and festivities into homes, lake house, office, or back porch. Enjoy your own “watching party” wherever you are
This Fundraising event has helped the American Cancer Society raise more than $10 million over the past 25 years…money that helped save and celebrate lives and lead the fight for a world without cancer. ACS and the CURE! Committee are thrilled with this year’s plans, which will feature new experiences and expanded opportunities for the community to be involved.
“We can’t wait,” said Co-Chair Paige Mock “We are working hard to ensure that everything is top shelf. So, be sure to save the date, October 8, 2020, for one grand evening. Be sure to spread the word about this new opportunity to party from your home or lake house if you like, with friends, family and coworkers. Of course, your special evening will yield great news for cancer patients who may need transportation to treatment, more treatment options, and, above all, accelerated movement toward a world without cancer.”
The community’s support is very important to the American Cancer Society, and vital to the ongoing work ACS does to improve the odds for remission, recovery, and the quality of life for those currently battling cancer. The money raised at CURE! is used to fund programs and services offered to cancer patients in the community and to aggressively fund groundbreaking research.
Cancer Has Not Stopped and Neither Have We! We need your support more than ever this year. Over the past 100 years, The American Cancer Society has been leading the fight to end cancer. With your support, we have helped usher in an era where more people survive cancer than ever before. By translating our research findings into action, we've seen a 20% decline in US cancer death rates since the early 1990s.
