LETTER FROM THE CO-CHAIRS The American Cancer Society’s Indianapolis Discovery Ball is a premier event that raises funds for the Society’s mission to improve the lives of people with cancer and their families through advocacy, research, and patient support, to ensure everyone has an opportunity to prevent, detect, treat, and survive cancer. ​ We invite you to support our efforts to end cancer as we know it, for everyone, by joining us on November 16, 2024 for the Indianapolis Discovery Ball. It is a beautiful evening bringing together business and community leaders to this event. ​ In 2023, the Indianapolis Discovery Ball raised a little more than $585,000 to help the American Cancer Society continue to fund life-saving research as well as free programs and services for cancer patients and their families in the Indianapolis metro area and across the nation. We know with your participation, we can help end cancer as we know it, for everyone. ​ Thank you for your support!
