COVID-19

EVENT UPDATES

The health and safety of our immune compromised supporters, volunteers, staff and community at-large are of the utmost importance. Therefore, we will be requiring all individuals attending this year’s Discovery Ball to be fully vaccinated with either one dose of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine or two-doses of the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine AND attendees must provide a negative COVID-19 test within 48 hours of the event. 

Discovery Ball will be utilizing Cleared4® as our health verification platform to ensure covid-related safety for our guests. It is imperative guest lists are confirmed by Wednesday, September 15 to allow ample time for Cleared4® to mail at-home test kits to all attendees.

Certainly, we are erring on the side of caution and proceeding deliberately and carefully. However, as a public health organization that serves the immune-compromised, our responsibility is greater to protect the health, safety, and well-being of those that trust us.

 

We regularly assess potential for in-person events and strictly adhere to all federal and local health department guidance including event size and masking.

ABOUT ACS

The American Cancer Society is attacking cancer from every angle. 

We promote healthy lifestyles to help you prevent cancer. We research cancer and its causes to find more answers and better treatments. We fight for lifesaving policy changes. We provide everything from emotional support to the latest cancer information for those who have been touched by cancer. And we do it all 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

We're attacking cancer
by backing visionaries,
investing in longshots,
and building on hard-won knowledge
to find powerful new weapons.

We're attacking cancer
by making it less scary and confusing,
less stressful, less lonely.

We're attacking cancer
by showing up every day,
driving people, boosting people,
picking them up when they’re down.

We're attacking cancer
by providing a place to stay,
by building a community.
A home for healing.

 

We're attacking cancer
with stubborn hope, relentless energy,
and a promise that everywhere cancer
rears its despicable head,

we will be there
to blunt its effects and l
essen its power.

 

From the cellular level to

the street level,
with brilliant new thinking and

in the darkest hours,

the American Cancer Society is

attacking cancer at every angle.
