Annual Tampa Bay Gala ‘Casino Royale’ Benefits Cancer Patients & Their Families
Bradenton, Fla., August 1, 2022 — The Florida Cancer Specialists (FCS) Foundation (FCSF) released details about its annual Tampa Bay Gala, which has been consistently voted in the Top Five of Tampa’s Best Fundraising Events by readers of the Tampa Bay Business Journal. This year’s event will be held on October 1, 2022 at the Armature Works, 1910 North Ola Avenue, Tampa, Florida; it features the theme ‘Casino Royale’ with an evening full of James Bond-style intrigue, elegance and excitement!
“After two years of COVID-caused virtual fundraising, we are really excited to be returning to ‘in-person’ events that will provide critical support and financial assistance for cancer patients in need,” said Nathan Walcker, CEO of Florida Cancer Specialists (FCS) and Honorary Co-Chair of the Tampa Bay Gala. FCS Oncologist Michael Scott, MD , also event Honorary Co-Chair, agreed, “This is such an important event because it is the largest fundraiser for the FCS Foundation, which provides non-medical living expenses, such as rent, mortgage, car or phone payments, and utility payments for qualifying adult cancer patients who are currently undergoing treatment in Florida.”
FCS Oncologist and FCS Foundation Board Chair, Maen Hussein, MD, was particularly enthusiastic about the Casino Royale theme. “This evening is going to be over-the-top fun, with dinner, dancing, a tremendous silent auction and, of course, everyone dressed like a James Bond movie. I look good in a tuxedo and I have my own! Is powder-blue still in style?” he laughed.
Lynn Rasys, Executive Director of the FCS Foundation, announced that now through August 1, tickets are available at pre-sale discounted prices. “Seats will be limited for this year’s event,” Lynn explained, “so be sure to go to the Foundation website, FCSF.org/events and make your reservations.”
Prices are $300 for individual tickets and $3000 for a table of 10. Some sponsorships are still available for the gala evening, which includes dinner, dancing and an array of impressive auction items. To purchase tickets or sponsorships, visit https://fcsf.org/fcsf-events/tampa-bay-gala-2022/.
