"Beating cancer takes every approach, every idea  and every person."


Chaired by John & Kelly Elliott of Elliott’s Boots, the 2020 American Cancer Society Hope Gala will be held Friday, November 6, at the Press Room. This year's theme is "Under The Big Sky," a boots and bow tie affair. We are celebrating the moving of mountains by the American Cancer Society as they educate, prevent and lead the country in the fight against cancer. What better way to showcase such efforts than with a little Big Sky, Montana flair. Ladies, pull out your best furs and velvet. Men, lets see those cowboy boots! Think luxury ski lodge and big mountain fun! Festivities will include on-going live music, cocktail reception with a mobile silent auction, unlimited spirits, decadent multi-course dinner, honoree tribute ceremony, competitive live auction, and dynamic concert. The Hope Gala serves as one of the largest black-tie benefits in the state benefiting cancer, last year raising nearly $370,000. Let's keep this tradition alive!

"When fun gets deep enough, it can heal the world!"
