to the 14th annual Coaches vs. Cancer Wisconsin Gala! We are excited to have you join us for a beautiful evening on the rooftop of the Monona Terrace on Wednesday, June 23, 2021. The gala will bring together prominent individuals from Wisconsin’s business and philanthropic community and will feature live and silent auctions, honorary tributes, a special keynote speaker, and appearances from Coach Bo Ryan and other coaches across the state.
To ensure the health and safety of our attendees, this year's gala will be a smaller gathering than in year's past. However, for those that are unable to attend in person, we invite you to join us virtually as we live stream the program on Wednesday, June 23rd at 6:45pm!

We are honored to be recognizing the Andringa Family as our Fan of the Year. Rob Andringa was a former UW hockey player and beloved member of our Madison community who sadly passed away from colon cancer at the age of 51. We are grateful to be joined by his wife, Christi, and their children at the gala as we honor Rob’s memory.
For over 100 years, the American Cancer Society has been leading the fight against cancer. Right now, the mission is at risk like never before. The COVID-19 pandemic has upended lives and businesses, and ACS is no exception. Failing to invest now means fewer preventative tools, fewer treatment options, lost progress towards a cure, and ultimately, more deaths from cancer in the future. We simply cannot let that happen.
Over the past thirteen years, Coaches vs. Cancer Wisconsin has raised more than $8.1 million and remains the largest Coaches vs. Cancer program in the country! ACS is currently funding over $4 million in cancer research right here at home at the University of Wisconsin - Madison!
