Rolfe Foundation celebrated their 20th anniversary with A Magical Night of Hope to honor their founding members at the Builders Building on Saturday, October 12. Over 300 guests attended to support the Rolfe Pancreatic Cancer Foundation!
Guests were able to enjoy passed apps, live music, open bars, two buffets with one raw bar including, king crab legs and cocktail shrimp, a silent auction, blackjack games, a magic mirror photo booth, and words of wisdom read by Zoltar! As if that wasn’t enough action, there was a hula hooper twirling around the venue with light up hula hoops. Throughout the entire evening a memorial slideshow was presented on two large screens. Stack the deck volunteers roamed the space selling cards for two attendees to win either a Las Vegas vacation package or a $750 gift card to ABT.
Once guests settled in, the live presentation took place where Stacia Hart, Rolfe Executive Director, and Rachel Sheinkop, Rolfe Board Vice President, gave opening remarks and thanked the generous sponsors. Stacia and Rachel introduced Jim Rolfe to the stage, who spoke about his family’s experiences with pancreatic cancer which led into an extremely touching and emotional short video. Two pancreatic cancer warriors stepped on the stage to share their journeys with the audience. They both spoke how early detection pancreatic cancer can mean life changing results for patients. This segmented into the fund-in-need, which raised more than the organization’s goal of $30,000.
Rolfe Pancreatic Cancer Foundation was founded to raise awareness and discover a method of early detection for pancreatic cancer, which has the highest mortality rate among cancers. To learn more about their efforts and how you can contribute, please visit: http://www.rolfefoundation.org/
