The word cancer is frightening. Cancer is a word heard all too often affecting our families, loved ones and communities. The American Cancer Society estimates that over 1.6 million people in the United States will hear those words this year. Despite this staggering statistic, more and more people are surviving cancer every day through lifesaving research and treatments. With your help, we can make even greater progress.
In 2018, Houston Corks and Forks was incredibly successful. Again, this year with your generous help we can without a doubt make this event a National model for the American Cancer Society Corks and Forks to be held in every major city. For our efforts to be successful, we depend on sponsors and benefactors like you. With support from our underwriters, most all of the event costs are covered. This ensures that the entire amount raised during the event goes directly to the American Cancer Society to fulfill its mission.
We ask that you kindly consider supporting the American Cancer Society’s vision of a world free from cancer by sponsoring the 4th Annual Houston Corks and Forks event at the Ballroom at Bayou Place. This evening features an amazing and fun culinary competition highlighting some of Houston’s top chefs. Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy delicious food and wine tastings as they watch our chef’s show-off their culinary skills and creativity. This year’s chef showdown promises to be a one of a kind evening filled with great activities and Houston’s most prominent culinary influencers. This is one event you will not want to miss!
Please join us at Corks and Fork’s, October 3, 2019 at the Ballroom at Bayou Place located in Houston’s Downtown Historic District.
For your consideration, please find the various opportunities and benefits provided for all levels of sponsorship. We would be honored to have you as our distinguished partner by including your name, family, and/or business as one of our sponsors.
Lifesaving and life-changing programs, services and research would not be possible without the generosity of supporters like You.
Thank you in advance for your consideration and support. Together we can save lives by hopefully putting an end to this dreadful disease in our lifetime.
