Every hour of every day, at least one American dies from melanoma! This disease is increasing faster than any other cancer and does not discriminate, striking people of all ages, races and sexes. There are over 1,000,000 Americans currently battling melanoma and over 160,000 people will learn this year that they have this terrible disease…and approximately 500 of them will be children!

When caught early, melanoma is treatable. However, when caught late, the odds of survival decrease significantly. The Melanoma Research Foundation is leading the way to transform melanoma from one of the deadliest cancers to one of the most treatable through research, education and advocacy. Despite melanoma’s incredible devastation, magnitude and reach, it continues to receive only 10% of cancer research funding.

Please help join us in the fight by taking part in the 8th Annual DC Wings of Hope for Melanoma Gala. This year’s gala will be held on Saturday, February 24, 2018 at the Ritz-Carlton, Tysons Corner, and will feature an amazing keynote speaker…Hall of Fame baseball player Mike Schmidt. Mike is often considered the greatest third baseman in baseball history. He spent 18 seasons in the Major Leagues racking up impressive stats and accolades, but today believes melanoma is the biggest gamechanger of his life! He will be sharing his heartfelt story about his battle with melanoma and you don’t want to miss it! The gala will also include an evening of exquisite food and drinks, live music, silent/live auctions, and the opportunity to network with local business leaders.

Last year, the DC Wings of Hope Gala raised over $250,000 through the generous support of gala attendees and sponsors… all of which went to support the fight against melanoma! The critical funds that are raised through this gala help to increase research grants, support patients and their families, and educate the general public about this deadly disease.

On the attachment below, you will find more detail on sponsorship levels for the 8th Annual DC Wings of Hope Gala. I hope you will not only join us, but also consider increasing your support by being a sponsor of this year’s event. If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Ashley Schubert at ashleys@dcwingsofhope.com.

We hope to see you on Saturday, February 24, 2018, for what promises to be an amazing and impactful evening!
