In light of current events and to ensure the safety of our attendees, staff, and volunteers, the Discovery Ball Leadership and the American Cancer Society has decided to transform the April 18 gala into a virtual event.


This difficult, yet, responsible decision was made with the utmost caution and consideration. Although we won't be gathered together in person, we hope to continue the spirit of the evening with an exciting virtual auction, featuring a wide array of items and experiences.

  • Thursday, May 14, 9:00am – Discovery Ball General Auction Opens

  • Tuesday, May 19, 9:00am – Discovery Ball Premier Auction Opens

  • Thursday, May 21, 7:00pm – Digital Discovery Ball 

  • Thursday, May 21, 7:45pm – Discovery Ball Auction Closes
