Sarasota Luncheon


Thank you for joining us! Together we raised over $130,000 for cancer research!

The 2018 luncheon date will be announced this spring. Please check back for more details.

Moffitt Cancer Center hosted its annual luncheon in Sarasota on Nov. 1, 2017 at Michael’s on the Bay at Marie Selby Gardens. We are proud of the impact of this philanthropic event, and applaud both Susan Jones and Alisa Pettingell for their tremendous leadership as co-chairs.

Since the luncheon’s inception in 1998, Sarasota residents have rallied together to raise more than $1.2 million to support 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.
