On November 9th, supporters of the Gastric Cancer Foundation gathered to celebrate and support A Cause for Hope, the Foundation's ninth annual fundraising event.
As live music and magic filled the venue, the event shone a light on a hopeful future powered by research. Sponsors, researchers, board members and supporters used their collective power to demonstrate belief in the search for a cure by bidding on exciting auction items and donating to the Foundation.
Thanks to this generosity, the event raised more than a quarter-million dollars to power gastric cancer research and programs.

"I am so appreciative of the friends of Gastric Cancer Foundation. Our board, our sponsors, and our guests all played a part in bringing alive the theme of Believe and made the event such a success. It was a special night for an even more special cause."
