Presents the:

Come “Fly With Us”!

Great food, dancing to an awesome DJ, plus Silent & Chance Auctions while supporting pediatric cancer research on Saturday April 22, 2023

At our 40th Annual “Evening of Hope” we raised money for “Kids Without Cancer” to support pediatric cancer research at Children’s Hospital of Michigan and Wayne State University.

New Venue – We enjoined an evening of dinner and dancing surrounded by operational WWII bombers and other iconic aircraft on Saturday April 22, 2023.  It was reminiscent of a WWII USO Hangar Dance!

100% of all proceeds go directly to pediatric cancer research.

It was a terrific time with great food catered by The Moveable Feast and dancing to a DJ. 

We thank the following from the bottom of our hearts for allowing us to host the event at:
Belleville, Michigan 48111

Willow Run Airport

Kids Without Cancer was able to update the attendees on our recent endeavor to accelerate pediatric cancer research in Michigan in conjunction with our partners at the Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation!!

Kids Without Cancer turns 41!!!

It is hard to believe that Kids Without Cancer is now 41 years old and still working toward finding that elusive cure for pediatric cancer of all types!

We are proud of the accomplishments from our early days as Leukemia, Research, Life, Inc right up to today as Kids Without Cancer.  We have raised in excess of $5 million dollars and are happy to say that over 97% of the money raised is spend directly on pediatric cancer research at Children’s Hospital of Michigan and its affiliation with Wayne State University School of Medicine and Karmanos Cancer Institute.

We know the research worldwide is bearing fruit because back in 1981 approximately 50% of children diagnosed with cancer would not survive AND today approximately 85% of children diagnosed WILL survive.  We just need to reach that 100% goal and create a world of Kids Without Cancer………

Stay tuned for future announcements as we are in the process of expanding our “Kids Without Cancer Zebrafish Initiative” research lab located on the main campus of the Wayne State University School of Medicine!!!
