The Coaches vs. Cancer BasketBall brings together business, health care, and philanthropic leaders for a night to make a difference in the fight against cancer and fund life saving research, patient services and programs right here in Philadelphia.

We're thrilled to be back in person for our 18th Annual BasketBall. Proof of vaccination will be required for all guests. Please continue to monitor this website for additional details. Check here for our full COVID-19 safety regulations.


The American Cancer Society is dedicated to saving lives, celebrating lives, and leading the fight for a world without cancer. From breakthrough research, to free lodging near treatment, a 24/7/365 live helpline, free rides to treatment, and convening powerful activists to create awareness and impact, the Society is the only organization attacking cancer from every angle.

The 18th Annual BasketBall will honor Coach Herb Magee. The Jefferson Ram's Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame Coach is a beloved Philly legend. We're proud to honor Coach's career, retirement, and lengthy list of accomplishments off the court, at this year's BasketBall.
