CAN Seeking Sponsors, Donations for “Closer to the Cure” Fundraiser
The Cancer Alliance of Nebraska (CAN) (cancerallianceofnebraska.org) has announced that Closer to the Cure 2018, the organization’s signature fundraiser event now in its 6th year, will be held on Friday, September 14. It will take place at the Omaha Country Club, with the festivities starting at 6 p.m. Attendees can expect an evening of cocktails, dinner, raffles, and both live and silent auctions to help in the fight against cancer.
The Cancer Alliance of Nebraska is currently looking for donors, sponsors, and auction items. They also encourage supporters to donate to CAN during the Omaha Gives! initiative on May 23. All proceeds go to support cancer patients in Nebraska who are enrolled in clinical trials.
CAN is a 501c3 organization that focuses on improving the availability of treatment options for cancer patients across Nebraska. CAN works with the National Cancer Institute and pharmaceutical companies to bring clinical trials directly to patients in their own communities across the state. CAN also works with a number of hospitals and clinics in Nebraska to support care for cancer patients by providing clinical trials as well as assisting with the management of the trials in the local community setting which ensures patients have access to cutting-edge trials without leaving the comfort of their communities.
