“Over the Rainbow” Gala

Resorts World Catskills in Monticello, NY - Saturday, October 1, 2022

The story of The Wizard of Oz embodies courage, strength and HOPE.  ‘Over the Rainbow’ signifies the colors incorporated in The Allyson Whitney Foundation’s Logo which represent the different types of cancers our warriors face each day.  Each warrior finds themselves saying, “There’s no place like home!”  AWF helps them find the courage, strength and HOPE so they can get home. 

The Allyson Whitney Foundation is hosting its first ever ‘Over the Rainbow’ Fundraising Gala on Saturday, October 1, 2022.  This much anticipated event will commemorate all that is The Allyson Whitney Foundation!  Drink, Dine & Dance the evening away as we celebrate our accomplishments, our young adult cancer warriors and all our supporters all while raising money for young adults battling cancer.

‘Rare’ is a word used often when faced with a cancer diagnosis as a young adult.  Young adults ages 16-40 get a rarer form of a main disease such as colon, breast, and names you can’t pronounce.  Ally looked forward to the day she could be advocate for an underserved demographic of young adults battling rare cancer.  To help emotionally and financially.  Her pursuit to help became our pursuit.  Since inception:

  • AWF granted $474,283.66 in Life Interrupted Grants™
  • AWF reached 436 cancer patients and their families
  • AWF has donated $105,000 to research under the stewardship of Dr. Michael Frumovitz at MD Anderson Cancer Center
  • AWF delivered 456 HOPE comfort to New York and CA oncology suites

Help us raise as much money for young adults battling cancer as we possibly can on this beautiful evening of celebrating & giving!

The Allyson Whitney Foundation is standing with you.
