Sarasota Luncheon


Each year Moffitt Cancer Center hosts an annual luncheon in Sarasota that benefits breakthroughs in Moffitt’s cancer research. 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, over 24,000 patients from Sarasota are treated at Moffitt annually. Since the luncheon’s inception in 1998, Sarasota residents have rallied together to raise over $1.1 million to support advances at Moffitt.

The 2017 luncheon will be held Nov. 1 at Michael’s On The Bay at Marie Selby Gardens. We hope to see you at this exciting new venue to learn about Moffitt’s mission: to contribute to the prevention and cure of cancer.
