The UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center is hosting a “Fire + Ice Ball” – a “red hot evening for a cool cause” on April 14th at the Chapel Hill Country Club.  “Chill out with great food and drinks in the Ice Lounge,” bid on the “smoldering hot” auction items, and dance to “cool” music from DJ Minor.  Definitely sounds like one hot night!

The cool cause is one we all know – the UNC Lineberger Cancer Center.  UNC Lineberger is a nationally recognized leader in cancer research, treatment, prevention and outreach, and is also the only public cancer center serving the needs of North Carolinians. The Center treats patients from every county in North Carolina, with more than 135,000 patient visits each year. 

In addition to serving the people of North Carolina, the Center’s extensive cancer research programs serve the people of the world.  UNC Lineberger is home to internationally recognized research programs in Cancer Cell Biology, Immunology, Molecular Carcinogenesis, Cancer Genetics, Molecular Therapeutics, and Virology that investigate the molecular and genetic basis of cancer and progression.

As a public cancer center, UNC Lineberger relies on funding from the state as well as donations from private individuals, corporations, and foundations to support its mission. Gifts to UNC Lineberger ensure that the Center will be able to conduct cutting-edge cancer research, treat cancer patients with state-of-the-art technology, and train future physicians and scientists.

The “Fire & Ice Ball” is a great opportunity to have some fun, dance a little, and support this terrific cause.  To learn more, go to:
