Celebrate the American Cancer Society's 12 years of fighting cancer and researching for a cure through the Black & White Gala "Bow-Tie Experience". Join the Acadiana community at this formal event of glitz, glamour and entertainment that has become the talk of the town!
Whether you're at home in your gowns and tuxes or busting a move out on the dancefloor at a venue - however we'll able to celebrate this year, we'll do so with a common cause in mind - attacking cancer from all angles.
Each year, the Black & White Gala "Bow-Tie Experience" honors 13 outstanding individuals in the community as Spirit of Hope Honorees. These honorees are nominated by their peers and include cancer survivors, caregivers, healthcare professionals and individuals who have had a significant impact on the Acadiana and cancer communities.
The evening also features an online silent auction with mobile bidding and a Fund the Mission call to action fundraising, sponsored by our partners at Tides Medical. Fund the Mission is an opportunity to directly allocate funds to access to care via transportation assistance in Louisiana or general cancer research. Each Fund the Mission donation is 100% tax deductible.
For more than 100 years, The American Cancer Society has been leading the fight to end cancer. With your support, we have helped usher in an era where more people survive cancer than ever before. By translating our research findings into action, we've seen a 20% decline in US cancer death rates since the early 1990s.
