Cancer shows no mercy. Its dark cloud has touched most of us in some way. But the illumination Gala rallies our community to help make the future brighter in St. Louis and beyond.
Since 2007, illumination has generated millions of dollars to support the Alvin J. Siteman Cancer Center’s leadership in the fight against cancer. The 2013 event alone raised nearly $1.8 million for The Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital's Cancer Frontier Fund, a $50 million campaign to help researchers at the Siteman Cancer Center accelerate breakthroughs in prevention, diagnosis, and treatment that will change cancer care and cure around the world. Our annual gala has rapidly become one of the can’t-miss evenings of the year.
Siteman Cancer Center’s combination of innovation and compassionate care has made it one of the largest cancer programs in our country. Likely, someone you know has been treated there. We will be honored to include your organization among those who want to invest in the successes and potential of this phenomenal community asset—the only cancer center within a 240-mile radius to have earned the Comprehensive Cancer Center designation from the National Cancer Institute.
