My name is Debora Wright and I am honored to be the Event Chair for California Spirit
32. I am incredibly passionate about the work of the American Cancer Society. I became
involved because women were not getting mammograms as recommended by American
Cancer Society. As a mammographer, I embrace everything that ACS stands for from prevention,
early detection, advocacy, education and research, as well as the Cancer Action
Network. The commitment to saving women's lives extends to passing laws that have
made mammography a mandatory benefit paid by insurance companies. Breast cancer is
becoming a chronic disease as we have almost 3 million women surviving their diagnosis.
I’ve been a volunteer with the American Cancer Society for the past 30 years and I am
so impressed with the advancements that have been made, the lives that been touched
and the ongoing commitment and support of survivors and patients in our community.
Your commitment to California Spirit last year helped us raise over $100,000 dollars to
benefit programs such as the 80 by ’18 Colorectal Cancer Campaign, Look Good Feel
Better, Road to Recovery, research and prevention which directly affect patients and survivors
in Los Angles. This growth has now spawned a thriving committee and the continued
and valued support of Sony Studios and our dedicated honorary chairs, Sherry Lansing,
Phil Rosenthal, and Bill Chait. We enjoyed your participation last year and welcome you
to become a part of finishing the fight against cancer. We are close and hope you will help
us connect the dots to end this disease.
California Spirit is turning 32 this year and we are planning a very fabulous party featuring
the best restaurants, wineries, breweries and spirits in Los Angeles. Our auction is going to
be incredibly diverse and unique. We are very excited to share all of the surprises we
have in-store and can’t wait for you to see what we’ve been planning for the past year.
Your support helps ensure that we can continue the life-saving and critical work of the
American Cancer Society! We hope to see you on July 16th.
For more than a 100 years, The American Cancer Society has been leading the fight to end cancer. With your support, we have helped usher in an era where more people survive cancer than ever before. By translating our research findings into action, we've seen a 20% decline in US cancer death rates since the early 1990s. Join us to help finish the fight.
