It’s a celebration of community heroes for their selfless acts of compassion and generosity to helping all who are “veterans of cancer” and helping to enrich their lives along their cancer journey.
THERE’S A NEW LOOK TO THIS YEAR’S HEROES BALL

6:00 – 7:00 pm Cocktail Reception
7:00 – 9:00 pm Program & Awards
9:00 – closing – Afterparty hosted by
Rochester Cocktail Revival with Music and Dancing
It is our largest fundraiser and held annually in the fall 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. The evening is a delicious dinner at Radio Social and includes a silent and live auction of amazing items. The silent auction will be online and open to anyone whether attending the event or not. All funds raised from 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 through our no-cost educational, social and emotional support programs.
