The 2015 American Cancer Society 7th Annual Discovery Celebration Gala was held at the US Grant on May 31 (photos from the event are on this page). The Gala was part of the 2015 American Cancer Society Distinguished Events Weekend, which also included the 12th Annual San Diego Invitational at the La Jolla Country Club on June 1. The fun-filled weekend featured great food, spectacular auctions, golf, celebrations, and fundraising.
“For nearly a century, the American Cancer Society has fought for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. By taking what the American Cancer Society has learned through research and turning it into what its does, the American Cancer Society has contributed to a 15 percent decrease in the overall cancer death rate between the early 1990s and 2005. That means that the American Cancer Society has helped avoid about 650,000 cancer deaths and created the potential for more birthday celebrations. Overall, 14 million cancer survivors in America will celebrate a birthday this year.”
