Moffitt Cancer Center Sarasota Luncheon
Thank you to those who joined our annual luncheon in Sarasota!
This year’s luncheon was held at Michael’s on the Bay at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens on Jan. 30. The event raised more than $200,000, bringing the grand total since 1998 to $1.5 million. All proceeds benefit the advancement of cancer research at Moffitt through the newly established Sarasota Innovation Fund.
This year, CAR T, a revolutionary cellular immunotherapy, was the main topic of discussion. Attendees were given a glimpse of some of the cutting-edge research happening in their backyard from Moffitt expert, Dr. Frederick Locke. Learn more about this year's keynote speaker, Dr. Fred Locke!

In its early years, the luncheon was held to raise funds for and build awareness around breast cancer research. It has evolved into an event that funds innovative research in areas all across the cancer center. As the only NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center in Florida, Moffitt impacts residents throughout the entire state - including Tampa’s neighboring Sarasota and Manatee counties. In fact, thousands of patients from Sarasota are treated at Moffitt annually.
