The evening will afford any supporter the opportunity to play a vital role in raising funds to fight cancer while simultaneously spending quality time with fellow business leaders, customers, and prospects. Since 1996, Coaches vs. Cancer of Philadelphia has raised over $16 million to help eradicate cancer by funding lifesaving research and improve the lives of those affected by this disease.
