Monthly Archives: May 2016 hosts annual Jockeys, Juleps & Jazz event’s annual Jockeys, Juleps and Jazz Kentucky Derby fundraising event was a tremendous success. Friends, members, sponsors and supporters came out in their festive Derby attire to support and raise vital funds to support our mission.

On May 7, more than 300 guests dined on a traditional menu of southern cuisine, sipped on signature mint juleps, bid on silent and live auction items and cheered on the running of the 142nd Kentucky Derby.

The event was also an opportunity to celebrate the mission of and honor two awardees with the George Karl Courage and Visionary Awards.
Eisai was awarded the George Karl Visionary Award, accepted by Teresa Cronin, Director, Corporate Advocacy. Eisai is an industry leader in patient-centered healthcare and we are honored to work with them to serve all people affected by cancer.

The George Karl Courage Award was presented to the Cronk Family, members and caregivers to their son, Brayden, who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at age 8. The Cronks use to update friends and family and get the support they need during Brayden’s treatment.

The Jockeys, Juleps and Jazz event raised approximently $225,000, allowing to serve even more people affected by cancer and continue to develop innovative and supportive programs for members and guests. Thank you to everyone who attended, sponsored and donated their time and resources to the event.
