Prevent Cancer Foundation® Annual Spring Gala raises more than $1.5 million

WASHINGTON, D.C. — On May 9, the Prevent Cancer Foundation® hosted its 25th Annual Spring Gala to advance the Foundation’s mission of saving lives across all populations through cancer prevention and early detection. The Foundation welcomed distinguished guests to the National Building Museum, including members of Congress, diplomats, and leaders in the business, government, medical, sports, media, social and philanthropic communities.

Switzerland Ambassador, His Excellency, Martin Dahinden and Mrs. Anita Dahinden served as honorary patrons of the event, which had the theme “Switzerland: Postcard Perfect.” Senators Bill Cassidy and Mazie Hirono were honored as 2019 Cancer Champions for their leadership in cancer prevention and other cancer-related issues. The senators have demonstrated their commitment to protecting coverage of services for seniors, veterans and first responders; prioritizing education on cancer; expanding funding for biomedical cancer research; limiting youth access to tobacco and more.

"We are so grateful for the work our cancer champions have done for our country to help fight for cancer prevention and cancer patients” said Carolyn Aldigé, Founder and CEO of the Prevent Cancer Foundation®. “They remind us that cancer is a bipartisan issue, and that we must work together in order to stop cancer before it starts.”

Dorys Lizama and Carmela Miglionico shared their stories about serving patients through the Foundation’s¡Celebremos la Vida! (Let’s Celebrate Life!) breast and cervical cancer screening program during the “Lighting the Way to Prevention” pledge drive. The pledge drive raised $106,376 for the Foundation in amounts ranging from $50,000 to $25.

In 2018, the gala earned the #4 spot among all charity benefits on BizBash’s  Top 100 Events in Washington, D.C., and is consistently recognized as one the most influential annual events in Washington.

Gala décor was personally designed by weddings and celebrations expert David Tutera, who is a member of the Foundation’s Board.

Throughout the evening, guests bid on hotly-anticipated items in the silent auction. The gala was a rousing success, raising a total of more than $1.5 million for cancer prevention research and community outreach programs like ¡Celebremos la Vida!
