April 26, 2019 6:00-9:00 Ruth Eckerd Hall, Clearwater
The Ignite the Light Gala raises awareness and financial support for cancer fighters, survivors, and caregivers who are between the ages of 18-39. Statistics say 1 young adult is diagnosed with cancer every 8 minutes- that’s 72,000 a year. As you look over the details of the night, I hope you’ll consider partnering with this cancer-world changing organization for our big night, the Ignite the Light Gala!
Who: Spark the Way is a registered Florida 501(c)3 that exists to see, serve, and support young adults, age 18-39, and their families who are affected by cancer. We provide a community that walks alongside fighters, survivors, and caregivers by funding medical bills and living expenses, providing connections and emotional support from our care team, and raising awareness through outreach events. We are not just a resource, but a relationship.
What: We host this special evening to raise support and awareness. The night begins with a cocktail and silent auction hour from 6-7:00. This year, we have a special surprise planned that has to do with our African Safari theme. We'll then move all gala guests to the main room for our program and dinner and dessert, catered by Ruth Eckerd. This is the time we'll introduce our guests and supporters to the young adult cancer fighters, survivors, and caregivers we've been able to help throughout the past year.The program will run until 8:30, when we will give a surprise grant to a nominated young adult cancer fighter, followed by an after-party on the deck.
Where: Spark the Way’s 4th Annual Ignite the Light Gala will be held at Ruth Eckerd
Hall located at 1111 McMullen Booth Rd, Clearwater,
When: The party of the year will be on April 26th, 2019, starting at 6:00 and ending around 9…ish.
Why: Not only will this evening leave you inspired in your own life, but it impacts the cancer-world as a whole. We are the only young adult cancer support in the state of Florida who provides financial assistance, emotional care, and community to an age group that is so greatly neglected in cancer centers across America. We need your help, whether its financially, or through volunteering, praying, or outreach- we need you! Please consider joining us at the 4th Annual Ignite the Light Gala.
