Imagine this...

Outstanding support came from the Winship Gala and the Fashion a Cure Fashion Show.

Winship Gala...

Imagine this: a Winship researcher discovering how a cancer cell metastasizes or how to precisely target cancer cell mutations or engage our own immune systems to fight cancer. Discoveries by Winship researchers lead to better ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat cancer, and those discoveries start with community grants supporting innovative research. Two Winship fundraising events this year showcased the Atlanta community's generosity.

The Winship Gala on March 24th surpassed $1.1 million. The black-tie event celebrated "imagination" as the force driving Winship’s innovative research. This year's gala proceeds will support grants for the new Winship Center for Cancer Immunology, as well as research focused on cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.



The Fashion Show

The 6th annual Friends of Winship Fashion a Cure Fashion Show raised $300,000. The funds will be used to purchase a critical new piece of equipment to enable Winship researchers to tag and visualize immune components in cells to better understand how cancer develops in those cells and how they may respond to treatment.

Fashion show models included cancer survivors carrying red roses, family members carrying yellow, and faculty carrying white.

The 2018 Fashion a Cure event took place at the St. Regis Atlanta and raised close to $300,000.
