Connor Cures is pleased to be hosting our third Connor Cures Gala & Silent Auction
WHY: Too many children are dying from cancer. Everyday, 7 die while 36 are diagnosed. We lost Connor on January 6th, 2013 at the age of 6 months old. No family should lose a child, especially one that young. To hear the words – “Your child has cancer” – are to this day the worst words we have ever heard. It is a nightmare that you never wake up from. So, we want to help others avoid this fate.
Pediatric cancer gets very little funding. In 2010, American Cancer Society donated 1 cent per dollar donated Leukemia/ Lymphoma donated 2 cents per dollar donated; National Cancer Institute put $176m towards pediatric cancer – less than 4%.
We will donate our proceeds to pediatric cancer research.
WHEN: Saturday, April 9th, 2016 starting from 6:30pm to 12:30am.
WHERE: The Mayflower Renaissance Hotel 1127 Connecticut Avenue, NW Washington, DC 20036
