This year’s 10th Annual Joan Hisaoka “Make a Difference” Gala – Assisting those Living with Cancer was another tremendous success! We are grateful to gala founder and Smith Center Board Member Bob Hisaoka, our sponsors, and guests for their dedication to our mission. It was a great evening of community, remembrance, and support.
This one evening raised 1.75 million dollars for Smith Center and Life with Cancer. This brings the 10 year total to 12 million dollars.
The support we receive from the gala enables us to continue offering life-changing programs to people impacted by cancer. The money we receive from this event allows us to provide programs such as yoga and stress relief classes, support groups, creativity workshops, healing circles groups for widowers, retreats and much more for people in the DC Community facing cancer.
