Communities across the country offer a variety of balls, galas, and theme parties to support the American Cancer Society. They range from formal black tie affairs, to western-themed events, to Hawaiian luaus, to costume parties. Most of these events offer live and silent auctions along with other entertainment.
Volunteers representing the region’s highest-profile businesses and leading families plan and implement galas. Businesses can become involved as planning committee members or by sponsoring the event. Thousands of people attended the ten galas in California last year. Galas offer an opportunity to introduce many of California’s top executives from different business sectors to the Society and allow for networking opportunities.
Each themed gala incorporates games, excitement and camaraderie that guests enjoy with each Ball. Anyone can participate in our Gala events. Community leaders, Corporate Executives, friends, families, businesses, neighbors, classmates, sports teams, etc., can buy tickets, bid on or donate auction items, or donate.
How to Join
You can join as a Guest, Cancer Survivor, Caregiver, event sponsor, a Day Of Event volunteer, or a donor. Find out if there is a gala near you or call us at 1-800-ACS-2345.
