Count me in on Saturday, April 26, when Grammy Award winner Keith Urban will be the featured entertainment at the American Cancer Society’s 8th annual Discovery Ball at the Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel. Walgreen’s president and CEO, Greg Wasson, and his wife Kim will co-chair this year’s event. I always look forward to this black-tie affair, not only because it’s such a great cause, but because it attracts such a varied and enthusiastic crowd of supporters, too. It’s always fun and this year, it will definitely be one cool party with Urban in attendance! I wonder if Nicole will come with…..
More than 800 people are expected to attend this event that will also include an always-amazing silent and live auction. Celebs flock to this great cause so you always get a chance to rub elbows with the rich and famous.
Since 2007, this annual black-tie gala has raised more than $16 million to support the Society’s mission to finish the fight against cancer. Amen to that and hope to see you there! (For tickets and more info, click here).
