On Wednesday, March 16 at the Coral Gables County Club, more than 400 business, community, and social leaders will come together for a celebratory and meaningful dinner for our most prestigious annual fundraiser, the Heart & Star Dinner.
This year, the Cancer Support Community Greater Miami is honoring The Pillars of Our Community as a heartfelt tribute surrounding the year-long celebration of our upcoming 15th Anniversary. Festivities officially begin at the 2016 Heart & Star and continue through the end of March, 2017!
The Pillars of Our Community are individuals who have been consistently active, engaged and connected to CSCGM in a vital and key volunteer leadership role for at least a decade or more. Additionally, these honorees have significantly enhanced the growth, reach, depth, and long term viability of our organization. Their volunteer service has been a positive and an important agent for change through their acts of advocacy, philanthropy and goodwill. As a Champion for our cause, these honorees have impacted tens of thousands of lives touched by cancer in our community.
Cancer Support Community Greater Miami opened locally in 2002 and has provided FREE cancer support services and programs to more than 25,000 patients and their loved ones. As an independent 501(c)(3) administered by a local Board of Directors, all dollars raised in Miami, stays in Miami. Men, women, and children, with all types of cancer at all stages of recovery have attended our support groups, educational programs, nutrition and exercise classes, stress reduction trainings, and social activities. CSCGM’s programs are designed to address the psychological and emotional aspects of cancer and its treatment. Evidence-based research shows that they work to diminish distress and improve quality of life for cancer patients and their caregivers.
