Golf outing
From the driving range to driving change, golf outings are a great way to support MSK. Get competitive or play for fun! Either way, you’ll be making an impact.
Cocktail party, gala, or lunch
Whether you want to plan the soiree of the century or have a small gathering with friends and family, we can help you transform a cocktail party, gala, or lunch into an MSK fundraiser.
Athletic event
Organize a 5K, set up a tennis tournament, or work with a local fitness studio to offer a donation-based class. Athletic events are a fun way to bring people together to support a great cause.
