Each Summer, the Courage of Carly Fund hosts Summer Splash, a color-themed, waterfront cocktail party to benefit pediatric research and supportive programs at Roswell Park. However, given the current public health climate, and with the safety of the population we serve at the forefront of our decision-making, our event cannot continue as usual this year. As a result, we have switched to a virtual event, because although life as we know it may be on pause, pediatric cancer does not pause, with 43 children being diagnose daily in the United States.
So with that in mind, we've re-imagined Summer Splash for 2020. This year, small group cocktail parties will take place throughout the WNY community from friday August 7th to Sunday August 9th, along with an online silent auction to raise critical funds. I will be hosting a modest outdoor cocktail party that Saturday evening. In lieu of the standard ticket price, we are asking each guest to donate a minimum of $30.
Inspired by the courage and strength of our founder Carly, and every child fighting their disease who comes through our doors at Roswell, the Courage of Carly Fund offers hope for a cure by funding research and supplying an extra dose of happiness in social and support programs as these children and their families move through their treatment journeys.
Thank you for your support!
