Virtual Event

To protect the health of our community, Denim & Diamonds 2020 will be a virtual event. Rather than our usual in-person gala, this year’s gathering will be online. We will continue to raise funds for cancer research and patient comforts as we continue to have an auction with a delicious gourmet dinner. In fact, think about this year’s event as all the good things we normally do with unlimited online reach!

As a result, sponsorship benefits have been updated. Our goal remains to provide our sponsors with maximum value and brand exposure. Similar to live events, we have put careful thought into providing return in this new format.

Denim & Diamonds provides the seed funds for critical and innovative cancer research, compassionate patient programs and to further address the growing needs of our patient population.
