And that’s not all! More talent announcements are coming soon! From the beginning, gala entertainment has been incredible and this year will be no different.

Save the Date 10-26-19

As Philadelphia’s most impactful annual charity event, #PhillyFightsCancer returns this year to the Philadelphia Navy Yard on Saturday, October 26, 2019. Last year, a sold-out crowd of over 1,800 grateful families, generous benefactors, faculty, staff, and friends attended Philly Fights Cancer: Round 4, raising an extraordinary $10 million. Funds raised at the Philly Fights Cancer Gala support the clinical trials and translational research at the Abramson Cancer Center.

Sponsorship Opportunities

In addition to incredible talent, this year Philly Fights Cancer is privileged to honor the Breast Cancer Clinical Investigative Team at the Abramson Cancer Center, a comprehensive team of highly-skilled breast cancer surgeons, sub-specialist medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, plastic surgeons, and oncology nurse navigators. The team meets weekly to discuss each patient’s treatment, resulting in the most advanced high- tech personalized care – providing education, compassionate care and the support needed to help each patient navigate their diagnosis and treatment plans. Help honor the members of the team by participating as a sponsor or by placing an advertisement in the event program book.

Honoring Loyal Supports – The Nolens

This year’s gala will also honor two loyal supporters and friends of Philly Fights Cancer, Margaret Anne and Jim Nolen. Margaret Anne and Jim have been instrumental in leading the way in support of breast cancer research at the Abramson Cancer Center. Their passionate advocacy, generosity, and commitment to cancer research and patient care is inspiring.
