Heroes Ball

The one where we our friends inspire us by the good they do for other. We celebrate the inspirational work of our community friends in helping to enhance the lives of people along their cancer journey.

This year’s theme is “F.R.I.E.N.D.S” and we will recognize the tremendous impact of individuals and groups on CSC Rochester as well as the community as whole.

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 Woodcliff Hotel and Spa and includes a silent and live auction of amazing items.  The silent auction is 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 free-of-charge social and emotional support programs.

Events at Cancer Support Community Rochester

In order to serve thousands of families each year – and because Cancer Support Community Rochester 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 Rochester 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 Rochester hosts some of the most unique and exciting celebrations in the area. Check out our calendar for upcoming events or see highlights from past events below.
