The first TargetCancer Foundation Gala took place in 2010, and more than a decade later this special evening continues to be our primary annual fundraiser and community building event.

Each Gala unites more than 300 supporters, including patients, caregivers, doctors, researchers, and advocacy partners around the common goal of raising awareness and funds to directly support TCF’s rare cancer research and patient support initiatives.
