The Indianapolis American Cancer Society Guild was founded in 2012 and is comprised of talented, philanthropic women from the greater Indianapolis area. The Guild supports the Central Indiana office of the American Cancer Society by generating awareness, raising funds and providing support for community outreach programs to achieve the shared goal of saving lives by helping people stay well, get well, find cures and fight back.
WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
The IACS Guild has successfully planned and hosted the annual Indianapolis Discovery Ball for the past six years. During this time, nearly $2 million has been raised to support the advancement of new discoveries in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. In addition, our members work within the community to provide cancer patients and their families with day-to-day support including educational and emotional support, rides to treatment and many other resources.
The Discovery Ball is one of the premier gala events of its kind to be held in the country. This one-of-a-kind evening, features great food, dancing, a spectacular auction, and much more. Save the date for November 9, 2019, to attend the 10th annual Discovery Ball to help the American Cancer Society save lives by helping people stay well and get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back against cancer. Visit the Discovery Ball website for information on sponsorships available, volunteering or purchasing tickets.
The Guild participates in various short-term projects to assist the community, cancer patients and survivors. Our projects include collecting head scarves and items to included in gift bags for individuals undergoing chemotherapy.
Our founders' vision was to create a Guild comprised of the most talented civic leaders in Indianapolis. As we work together to fulfill the Guild's mission, we take time to enjoy one another's company, too. Whether it's wine tasting, candle making, enjoying a local restaurant or celebrating the holidays together, the Guild always enjoys the opportunity to connect with its members.
