Special Events

Special events such as Saks Fifth Avenue’s Key to the Cure, ┬áheadliner luncheons, gala dinners, mixers, golf tournaments and others provide financial support both to the ongoing design and maintenance of CancerForward’s web-based platform and to CancerForward’s grants programs, which invest dollars in cancer survivorship and rehabilitation programs within healthcare institutions and community organizations throughout the U.S. Too, these special events provide a festive outing at which survivors can enjoy themselves and meet other survivors and survivorship advocates in unique and varied social settings. Financial contributions made in conjunction with special events are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.


Thanks to the more than 500 supporters of the October 2010 Saks Fifth Avenue Key To The Cure Charity Shopping Weekend benefiting CancerForward, which raised $120,000 for ongoing program development. In June, 2011, Saks Fifth Avenue will announce the dates of the 2011 event, at which CancerForward will honor its 2011 Class of Houston Forward Movers and again benefit from Saks Fifth Avenue’s Key To The Cure Charity Shopping Weekend. We hope you can join us!
