Raising Awareness and Money to Support Cancer Research in Michigan
On September 16, 2017 U CAN-CER VIVE Foundation will be hosting its First Annual Cure & Couture event at M1 Concourse. This event is the first and will be one to remember for raising money to support cancer research.
The red carpet will be rolled out at this much anticipated event at the LaFontaine’s private garage at the M1 Concourse. The new “car condo” will have its first reveal and is designed with the car enthusiast in mind. The event will feature VIP Trill Ride Experience around the 1.5 mile performance track. The VIP ticket holders will also be the first to see the private garage and tour the track.
Guests will be escorted into the party with valet service and greeted with their choice of drink including a specialty cocktail from the caterer of choice, Ocean Prime. They have over the top food and service that adds additional ambiance.
A special performance by Nuclassica, a talented pop violin group that has amazing energy and talent, will add major wow-factor to the evening.
The event will also feature a silent auction as well as live auction with fabulous items. We can only leak one sneak peek at this time; a Rolex watch with an estimated value of $10,000!
To come full circle on why we work so hard raise funds, a check will be presented to Dr. Taub of Children’s Hospital of Michigan to support the grant Diffuse Instrinsic Pontinue Giloma (DIPG).
Tickets are still available for purchase on the U CAN-CER VIVE event website with all profits going directly to fund grants for cancer research.
If you can not attend the event and would like to support the cause, you can make an online donation.
We are looking forward to continue to grow the reach of the foundation through our volunteers and fabulous donors.
