Step Out in Black to Join the Fight Against Cancer

American Cancer Society plans Black Out Cancer Ball

(Fairhope, Ala.) – The American Cancer Society (ACS) will host the Black Out Cancer Ball on April 8th, 2016 at the Fairhope Civic Center. The event is a fun-filled evening that honors the Bay Area’s top men & women of influence who dedicate time to their community and to the fight against cancer.

In addition to the honoree presentation, attendees will enjoy live music by Crowned Jewelz Band and exciting live and silent actions items from the area’s premier artists, boutiques and businesses. As part of the "Black Out” theme, guests are encouraged to wear black cocktail attire.

"Overall, 11 million cancer survivors in America will celebrate a birthday this year. The Black Out Cancer Ball committee thinks that’s a great reason to party,, said Blair Gewin. Cancer is something that touches just about every person in our community, and the event’s a great opportunity for all of us to get together to support the fight against this disease.”

Through fundraising events like the Black Out Cancer Ball, the ACS continues to save lives and create more birthdays by helping people to get well and stay well, find cures, and fight back against a disease that has taken too many lives. For nearly a century, the American Cancer Society has fought for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. Through their efforts the ACS has contributed to a 15 percent decrease in the overall cancer death rate between the early 1990's and 2005. That means they’ve helped avoid about 650,000 cancer deaths and created the potential for more birthday celebrations.

Tickets for the event are $100 and can be purchased online at
