As we head towards this year’s Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month in November, we have an exciting announcement to make. On Friday, November 19th, the inaugural PanCan Gala will take place at the Auckland War Memorial Museum. The vision of a dedicated and skilled committee of pancreatic cancer advocates led by GCF ambassador Nyree Smith, the gala will be an elegant formal evening with amazing entertainment in a stunning venue, all dedicated to improving outcomes for New Zealanders with pancreatic cancer.
Guided by your host and MC, actor Mark Hadlow, guests will enjoy an elegant evening of food, drink, and entertainment from not one but two supremely talented New Zealand musicians, Nathan Haines and Mitch James. With silent and live auctions hosted by Michael Boulgaris throughout the evening, all proceeds from the PanCan Gala will support the Gut Cancer Foundation’s efforts to fund research, clinical trials, and awareness campaigns for pancreatic cancer.
GCF Executive Officer Liam Willis said, “we understand that these are uncertain times and are incredibly grateful for the amazing efforts of the PanCan Gala Committee and the event sponsors who have continued to back the gala, in particular SkyCity, Forsyth Barr, Cumulo9, AIA NZ, Auckland Radiation Oncology & Emergent NZ.
As we hopefully head down the alert levels from next week, we can assure anyone purchasing a ticket that a full refund will be available should the event not go ahead. But we are staying positive and hope that you can join us for this celebration out of lockdown”.
