Search for the Cause Under the Stars
Saturday October 7, 2006
Search for the Cause Under the Stars is the Marin Cancer Project’s annual benefit. It will be held at the Village at Corte Madera on Saturday October 7th at 7pm. Our gala will give us the opportunity to officially rebrand our organization, changing the name from the Marin Cancer Project to Search for the Cause. With this event we will also launch the survey that was taken by Marin County residents in 2003 on the internet. Our goal is to be able to compare and contrast cancer statistics by asking populations outside of Marin to respond to the same questions asked of Marinites, the county with the highest cancer rates in the country. We will host the survey on the web during the month of October ( cancer awareness month ). To create as much of a buzz as we can, we are working on partnering with businesses locally and nationally to help get the word out to their customer base through links on websites, and on site promotion. If we can gather enough data from diverse populations maybe, just maybe we can begin to turn the tide on this disease.
SFTC Under the Stars will feature delicious cuisine prepared by Bay Area chefs, fantastic local organic wines, scrumptious desserts and music to dance to. The heart of the evening will be the Search for the Cause Photo Gallery, featuring luminaries and locals joining together in this quest.
