Join the American Cancer Society to save lives and create a world with more birthdays.
On September 20, 2013, you and other community leaders can enjoy one of the area’s premier events during an exciting evening filled with an elegant dinner featuring several local restaurants, late-night dancing, live entertainment, a spectacular live and silent auction, games and much more! As we come together to party with a purpose, the American Cancer Society will continue to save lives and create more birthdays by helping people to stay well and get well, find cures, and fight back against a disease that has taken too many lives.
For 100 years, the American Cancer Society has fought for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. By taking what we’ve learned through research and turning it into what we do, we have contributed to a 20% decrease in the overall cancer death rate since the 1990's. That means that we helped avoid about 650,000 cancer deaths and created the potential for more birthday celebrations. Overall, 11 million cancer survivors in America will celebrate a birthday this year. Now that’s a reason to party, so join us!
The American Cancer Society is the nationwide, community-based, voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy, and service.
Cattle Baron's Ball is the nation’s single largest fundraiser for cancer research through the American Cancer Society, and is responsible for funding some of the ACS's most significant successes in the area of cancer research. In 1974, for example, almost 90% of children diagnosed with leukemia and other cancers died. Today, 90% of them live. We all know someone that has been diagnosed with cancer, help us continue in our quest to eradicate all cancers.
