Grand View League, a 25 year all volunteer fundraising branch of the American Cancer Society is hosting its 2019 Design & Discovery…dedicated to a cure event on Thursday, October 11th at La Rinconada Country Club in Los Gatos.
This Tea Party Luncheon will feature a Silent Auction whereby guests will have an opportunity to view and bid on lovely items and unique experiences.
Guests will also have an opportunity to shop at some of their favorite boutiques from past years as well as a new boutique. The on-site boutiques will be selling jewelry, clothing, and handbags. Each boutique will donate a portion of its sales to the American Cancer Society.
Guests will be updated on the Grand View League Research Funding Initiative (GVLRFI) launched in 2016. This initiative has funded a local cancer research scientist each year since its inception with a total of four being funded to date. Currently, over $61,000 has been raised to fund a fifth research grant. The GVLRFI is unique in that 100% of donations to the Initiative go to funding local cancer research. Donors of $1,000 or more actually participate in selecting the research grant to be funded.
The American Cancer Society has been involved in nearly every major cancer breakthrough in the last century — from medications that help people live longer and better, to lifesaving cancer screening tests. As the world’s largest private funder of cancer research, the Society supports the best ideas of the brightest researchers, who with each discovery get us closer to a world without cancer. Since awarding its first grant, the Society has awarded over $4.8 billion to promising investigators.
Tickets can be purchased on line at www.ACSGrandViewLeague.org or by calling Janeth Berg at 408.688.0112.
As the afternoon draws to a close, guests will depart knowing they have supported an important cause and did so while enjoying the company of friends.
Grand View League has raised over $16 million in support of the Society in its cancer research and patient services efforts. There are now 47 Nobel Laureates among the Society’s funded researchers. This year marks the 106th birthday of the American Cancer Society. This is a chance for us to reflect on our progress, but even more so to continue our efforts to finish the fight,
