Cancer Sucks will donate $150,000 to three local organizations to aid in cancer research.
It will be the largest single donation given by Cancer Sucks, stated the organization's executive director, Rick Horton, in a recent release.
Cancer Sucks, which will be the recipient of funds raised from the upcoming The Party! New Year's Eve event in Tulsa's Blue Dome District, will be donating proceeds from the Shiprocked Music Cruise charity auction, as well as the John F. Henry PanSlam Golf Classic for pancreatic cancer research.
Cancer Sucks will donate $70,000 to Gateway for Cancer Research, $40,000 to Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences and $40,000 to the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center.
Cancer Sucks was established in 1998 by the family of Donna Holland White, who died in 1996. The organization, which is run by volunteers who have been touched by cancer, focuses on raising as much money for cancer research as possible. Corporate partnerships fund overhead expenses, allowing Cancer Sucks to donate all proceeds from events to cancer research.
