Emcee of the Evening 

The Cancer Survivors’ Fund held its third annual gala on the evening of April 22, 2005 at the Junior League to celebrate the lives of the CSF students and presentation of awards. Over 270 guests attended this elegant event. Our students and Board Members were on hand to greet our guests. Fulbright & Jaworski LLP partners, Bridgeway Capital Management partners, Texas Children’s Hospital staff, community leaders and local businessman were present to witness the success stories of our students. The event raised over $80,000 for the benefit of the students of CSF.

If it were not for their sincere interest, belief and continuous support, CSF would not have been able to endure the difficult early years.
