It is our largest fundraiser and held annually to honor and recognize our local “heroes,” our champions against cancer and for building a supportive network of programs and resources for people impacted by cancer. It’s a fun evening celebrating the spirit of caring and giving that makes our community a great place for all. All funds raised from the Heroes Ball (as with all our events and fundraising) stay in Rochester to benefit the men, women, teens, and kids in our community whose lives have been touched by cancer by allowing us to provide them with free educational, social and emotional support resources.
