CIOs Against Cancer invites you to CIOs Against Cancer Auction and Live Reveal. This annual event promises to be an evening of excitement and philanthropy. Our goal is to raise funds for American Cancer Society's early-career cancer research grants that will help researchers develop new treatments and cures for cancer.

Our special guest for the evening is Kevin Doran from KSTP, who will emcee the event and help us celebrate our collective impact in the fight against cancer. In addition, we are honored to welcome speakers who will share their expertise in the field of cancer research and personal experiences with cancer.

The highlight of the event will be the reveal of the CIO leaders participating in the auction. These leaders have generously donated their time for the auction, and we can't wait to see what surprises they have in store for us. All proceeds from the auction will go directly to American Cancer Society's Post-Doctoral Fellowship Grants.
