Events at Cancer Support Community at Gilda’s Club

In order to serve thousands of families each year – and because Cancer Support Community at Gilda’s Club receives no government funding – we rely heavily on funds raised though numerous events that celebrate our members, educate our community, and showcase what Cancer Support Community is all about. All event proceeds stay here in Rochester to support those in our community impacted by cancer.

From annual fan-favorites to featured events, Cancer Support Community at Gilda’s Club hosts some of the most unique and exciting celebrations in the area.
