The 5th Annual Women’s Power Lunch Against Cancer, benefiting Simmons Cancer Institute (SCI) at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine is an excellent opportunity for women to join together in the fight against cancer. This unique event unites our efforts to fund cutting-edge cancer research in central Illinois.

 

The exciting event is scheduled for 11:45 a.m. on Friday, April 25, 2014, at the President Abraham Lincoln Hotel, 701 E. Adams, Springfield, Illinois. Individual tickets are $50; tables of 10 are $500. Sponsorships are available and sponsor benefits can be reviewed by clicking on “Registration”.

 

Women who have attended past events remark that our speakers are incredible and moving. This year we are proud to present Kathleen Passanisi, award-winning motivational speaker and humorist.

 

Funds raised by the Women’s Power Lunch Against Cancer are dedicated to all cancer research at Simmons Cancer Institute at SIU, continuing the extraordinary enterprise of our researchers.

 

We hope you can join us for an event that women value for the ability to network and to grow the gift of a powerful message.
