The 6th annual Chase After a Cure (CAAC) Gala will be held Saturday, February 1st at the Memminger Auditorium downtown. Soulful and southern American Idol finalist Elise Testone, will perform live music while guests enjoy a cocktail hour, open bar, heavy hors d’oeruves and desserts, a live and silent auction and dancing.
In 2009, Summerville resident Whitney Ringler’s son Chase was given a 30% chance of survival after a diagnosis of stage 4 Neuroblastoma, an aggressive form of cancer accounting for 15% of all childhood cancer deaths. CAAC was founded to help families like Chase’s, who is now in full remission. Their goal is to provide support to families, while raising awareness of Neuroblastoma locally and nationally, and to help fund research for hospitals specializing in childhood cancer.
Since 2009, the annual Gala has raised over $400,000, with proceeds from the event, including the live and silent auction, benefiting the MUSC Children’s Hospital in Charleston.
