“Footloose and Cancer Free” Will Support Delnor Outpatient Cancer Services and LivingWell Cancer Resource Center
GENEVA, Ill. – September 1, 2011 — The Delnor Foundation invites all local residents to make an impact on cancer care in the Fox Valley community by attending the 2011 Gala Footloose and Cancer Free. Proceeds from this event, which will be held on Saturday, October 29 at the Q Center in St. Charles, will benefit outpatient cancer services and a new facility for LivingWell Cancer Resource Center in Geneva.
“Because of these initiatives, for the one in three of us who will eventually receive a cancer diagnosis, thoughtful, coordinated and accessible treatment and support care will be available right in the Fox Valley,” says Craig Collins, chairman of the Delnor Foundation board of directors.
Geneva-native Matt Rodewald, NBC Chicago reporter and anchor for 670 The Score, will emcee the evening, which will include the presentation of the inaugural Delnor Foundation Community Award honoring the Dellora A. & Lester J. Norris Foundation. Guests will enjoy the State Street Jewelers Champagne Bar, new silent auction bidding technology using cell phones and dancing following dinner to the music of Nightshift Orchestra.
“This event is dedicated to all local cancer patients and cancer survivors,” says Delnor Foundation Gala Co-chair Laura Grim.
“The funds we raise will help Delnor continue to meet the diagnostic and treatment needs of thousands of local residents each year,” added Foundation Gala Co-chair Sandy Kowalkowski.
The event is sponsored in part by Fox Valley Orthopaedic Associates, SC, and Tri City Radiology. Tickets are $175 per person and can be purchased online at www.supportdelnor.org or by calling 630-208-3896.
