Foundation Events

Sponsor an Event

Event sponsorships provide companies with an opportunity to align with Karmanos Cancer Institute’s mission and enhance reputation through high-visibility recognition. We offer two signature fundraising events hosted by Karmanos each year. These events, which bring together some of the community’s most influential philanthropic leaders and members of our local community who are interested in supporting the work being done at Karmanos. These events, The Hour Media Savor Detroit Showdown and Partners Night, each offer a unique event experience and a variety of exclusive sponsorship opportunities.

Signature Events

Karmanos is proud to be the presenting sponsor of the Hour Media Savor Detroit Showdown which takes place in late April. This unique event features five nights of extraordinary cuisine in an intimate setting, allowing guests to experience one-of-a-kind dining. As part of the Savor Detroit Showdown, Karmanos hosts a private, invitation only evening where guests learn about the outstanding work taking place at Karmanos while enjoying an exquisite mélange of fine food, perfectly paired wines and thought provoking conversations.

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.
