American Cancer Society Announces 100th Anniversary Celebration & Fundraiser

The American Cancer Society – Hawai’i Island announced today that it will hold “Hope Gala – Hawaii” on March 30, 2013, at the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel on the Kohala Coast, 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.

Hope Gala

“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.

Starting February 15, 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. Individual and corporate sponsorships and auction items are welcomed.
