Steeped in history and inspired by the first event held 10 years ago, our mission for the Tides of Change Gala is simple: to honor our local physicians and supporters who have gone above and beyond to help the Society and the patients and researchers we serve, as well as raise funds for cancer research, education, advocacy and service.

For more than 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.
