Each year the Hope Funds for Cancer Research honors outstanding individuals and organizations at a white-tie gala dinner. The purpose is both to give honor to these individuals but also to allow them to connect and interact with the postdoctoral Fellows to whom the Hope Funds provides grants to fund their research work. Each honoree is presented with a sterling silver medal and a diploma with an original piece of artwork.
