Tigerlily Foundation’s Annual EmPOWER Ball

Join Tigerlily Foundation in celebrating patients, providers, and supporters as we raise funds for programs that support young women before, during, and after cancer, with the goal of ending disparities within our lifetime. This is an evening of glamour and commemoration, honoring those who demonstrate inspiration, courage, and hope, and sharing their unique stories as trailblazers and leaders in health advocacy. Come walk the pink carpet and enjoy an evening of celebration with cocktails, dinner, awards, dancing, and a silent auction. Remember, your participation contributes to a greater cause – supporting young women affected by cancer. Black Tie Optional.
