When Rising Above....
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, craft beer, wine, spirits-related games, aerial arts and a hot air balloon. The evening will be topped off with a stunning fireworks show! Black-tie optional; capes encouraged.
