Spirit of Life Gala 2020 – Postponed to 2021

Based on the ongoing limitations on large gatherings, as well as the uncertainty of future health and safety guidelines, the Giffords and City of Hope have decided to postpone our annual Spirit of Life Gala. We know this is disappointing, but appreciate your understanding of the current constraints placed on such events. 

Cancer and diabetes do not stop because of a pandemic. For that reason, City of Hope remains steadfast and focused on its mission. Now more than ever, patients are turning to us for safe and immediate care. 

City of Hope doctors and nurses are working to ensure that patients have access to the time-sensitive surgeries, treatments and clinical trials they need. In fact, we are among are among the most prepared organizations in the country to help patients through this crisis. We are uniquely positioned because of our research expertise and decades of experience safeguarding immunocompromised patients against viruses and infections.
