One hundred percent of the net proceeds raised from the Pink Tie Ball 2020 efforts will be donated to support the fight against cancer by means of The Cancer Research Institute, The Michael Solberg Foundation, and the Northwest Community Hospital Cancer Center. Each year we strive to improve upon the last year’s totals, and 2019 surpassed our expectations by raising approximately $49,000 to aid the fight. We hope you are willing to join us raise even more in 2020! 

The Cancer Research Institute (CRI) is the world's only nonprofit organization dedicated exclusively to harnessing the immune system's power to conquer all cancers.

This important work has led to a promising new class of cancer treatments called cancer immunotherapy. These treatments mobilize, strengthen, and sustain the immune system's natural ability to destroy cancer cells, wherever they are in the body. 

CRI awards research grants and fellowships to support scientists at leading research universities and clinics around the world. Funding decisions are guided by a Scientific Advisory Council composed of renowned immunologists and tumor immunologists, including Nobel Prize winners,  members of the National Academy of Sciences, and members of the Academy of Cancer Immunology.

To accomplish this, the Cancer Research Institute relies on generous support from individuals, corporations, and foundations who have a desire to become partners in our effort to conquer cancer through immunology.
