Karmanos Events

Signature Events

The Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute hosts two signature events each year. The Annual Dinner is a seated gala held in the spring. The Partners Events, held in late summer, includes the Partners Golf Classic and a separate Partners Night event, which is a strolling gala. The Institute also benefits from a bi-annual event, Saks Blast, which is a strolling event with a seated fashion show.

The generous community of corporate and individual supporters along with the hard work of Karmanos volunteers makes these events a great success year after year.

We invite you to join us in taking part of these signature events. Whether it’s an event you would like to sponsor, attend, or volunteer at, we hope you consider becoming a supporter.

Friends Raising Funds

The Karmanos Cancer Institute also benefits from the Friends Raising Funds program. Friends Raising Funds is dedicated to individuals, community organizations and businesses that seek ways to get involved in the fight against cancer. From golf outings and walks to bake sales and private dinners, hosting your own event offers a great opportunity to support the Institute and get creative.
