Thankful for the progress we’ve made, giving towards an even brighter future.
Fall into autumn with the American Cancer Society as we embrace the spirit of the season with rustic décor, gourmet cuisine, live entertainment and 18 different casino-style games for luxurious prizes. With a 10-year history, the Tides of Change Gala Committee will honor local physicians, survivors and organizations who have gone above and beyond to help cancer patients and their families.
Today we have an enormous opportunity to end cancer, and the pain and suffering it causes. Thanks to the progress we’re making together, mortality rates from the disease have fallen 27% since 1991. That’s more than 2.4 million lives saved from cancer that would have otherwise been lost. While we’re making great progress, it’s going to take all of us, working together, to beat this disease. That’s why we do much more than breakthrough research. The Society also offers free rides to treatment, free wigs, a live 24/7 helpline and free lodging near hospitals. Your investment in the American Cancer Society means we’re able to provide support to everyone impacted by cancer, in every community, from research to education, prevention to diagnosis, and treatment to recovery.
The Tides of Change Gala provides the Jersey Shore Community with the opportunity to stand with the American Cancer Society in support of our local patients, caregivers and researchers. Since inception, this event has raised over $1 million for the fight against cancer. As we work towards our next million, we hope that you will join us as we save lives, celebrate lives and lead the fight for a world without cancer.
