Cancer Research Fundraising Gala with Lee DeWyze

November 3, 2012 10:17:25 AM PDT
On Saturday, November 3, 2012, the annual "Demand Cures Today Cures Gala for Cancer Research" takes place at the Fairmont Chicago Millennium Park. The event benefits "Demand Cures Today-The Gateway for Cancer Research." The evening celebrates new cancer research and innovative treatments from clinical trials currently being funded by The Gateway. The Gala raises money to fund additional cancer research to help continue the battle to find better treatments and cures for today's cancer patients.

The special guest at the event is Mount Prospect native and American Idol winner Lee DeWyze. He and Claire Gregoire, representative from The Gateway, came into our ABC7 studio to tell us about the event. Lee also performed his latest song and told us about his new concert tour that includes stops in the Chicago area.

While the fundraiser is sold out, you can still donate to the cause online
