This time it’s personal.


On July 14, 2008, a mom’s diagnosis of stage IV cancer changed everything. The emotions that came with hearing those words inspired the creation of the nonprofit, Cocktails Against Cancer. And that September, a tradition was born.

Every year, Cocktails Against Cancer goes beyond the usual check writing to fight this disease the best way we know how: bringing friends and family together for a night of unity, spirit, love and, that’s right, cocktails. Proceeds from this event and year-round donations go to organizations that have an immediate impact on the lives of people battling cancer, such as Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House Camp and Cancer Support Community of Greater Philadelphia.


None of this would be possible, however, without the generosity of individuals who dedicate their time and support to our events, or the businesses who participate in our auctions and raffles. Cocktails Against Cancer is truly a community effort.

We are standing together against a disease that has affected so many. We invite everyone to stand with us.


Cocktails Against Cancer is a registered 501(c)(3) and has raised more than $100,000 since 2008.
