Celebrating Everyday Heroes In Not-So-Everyday Ways
Heroes Ball, our annual gala, celebrates the power of hope, courage, and commitment to provide support for those impacted by cancer in our community. It also offers an opportunity to embrace Gilda Radner’s signature humorous outlook. The event includes live and silent auctions, photo booth, craft beer, wine, and spirits-related games, and more. Black-tie optional; capes encouraged. We are excited to announce Elaine and Jeff Lennox as this year's Honorary Chairs.
This year we are thrilled to present awards to the following honorees for their commitment to both Gilda's Club and the Rochester cancer community at large.
Come As You Are Award: The Elks of Lodge #24
CHAMP Award: Patty Bellohusen, MS, RN, CNL
Jacob P. Gitelman Award: Kathy Doerner, RN
All funds raised from Heroes Ball (as with all our events and fundraising) stay in Rochester to benefit the men, women, teens, and kids in our community whose lives have been touched by cancer through our free-of-charge social and emotional support programs.
