THE CAUSE  Debbie’s Dream Foundation: Curing Stomach Cancer (DDF) was started in 2009 after its founder, Debbie Zelman, was told that she had Stage IV advanced, incurable stomach cancer.  When she was diagnosed in 2008, her chances of being alive in five years were four percent.  There were – and still are – few treatment options for this devastating disease, and no progress has been made in survival rates.

DDF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness about stomach cancer, advancing funding for research, and providing education and support internationally to patients, families, and caregivers. DDF seeks as its ultimate goal to make the cure for stomach cancer a reality. For further information about this event and to find out about the extraordinary difference DDF is making, please visit our website at www.DebbiesDream.org. 

TICKETS  Tickets are $195 per person or $1,800 for a table of 10. Other sponsorship levels are available.  All sponsorships include seats. Contact Jenna Reed at [email protected] or call 954.475.1200.
