Signature Events

The Partners Night continues a wonderful tradition of engaging young philanthropists in the fight against cancer. Each fall the Partners Committee hosts their annual event with the sole purpose of supporting research at Karmanos. With a delicious strolling dinner, signature cocktails, live entertainment and stories of the incredible breakthroughs taking place at Karmanos, this is one evening guests are sure to remember. The generous support of corporate and individual donors along with the hard work of Karmanos volunteers makes these events a great success year after year. We invite you to join us in continuing the success of these events.
