Tickets are available for $55 per person, $250 for a reserved table for four and $500 for a reserved table for eight. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Lung Cancer Research Council.

Cancer survivors, supporters, friends and families are all invited to attend the Celebrate Life Summer Social and join the Lung Cancer Research Council in celebrating cancer survivorship. Hosted in honor of National Cancer Survivors Day, which is observed this year on June 5, the Celebrate Life Summer Social will provide an opportunity for members of the Southwest Florida community to engage in an evening of celebration while supporting Lung Cancer Research Council’s mission to raise awareness about lung cancer screenings.

“As a lung cancer survivor, I have come to understand the importance of celebrating the gift of life,” said Thomas E. Cappiello, president of the Lung Cancer Research Council. “In addition to our annual fall fundraiser race, I have always wanted to do something positive, fun and lighthearted to celebrate those who have overcome cancer. The Celebrate Life Summer Social provides the perfect opportunity to come together as a community, and we hope to bring this day of joy to Southwest Florida each year going forward.”

The Celebrate Life Summer Social is presented by RV Merchandising and Fawcett Memorial Hospital, and is also supported by Campbell’s Enrolled Agents & Co., Inc. and Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute.
