It was a diamond-studded affair at the American Cancer Society’s annual Cowford Ball. This year’s theme, “Denim and Diamonds,” delivered many a fashionable boot helping to give cancer more than a swift kick. It was a family affair at the 21st annual event as Honorary Chairs Gaspar and Irene Lazzara led the way, followed by Chairs Jennifer and John Lazzara, Rachel and Chris Lazzara, alongside Jessica and Chris Wynne.

Over 600 people attended the annual gala, helping to raise over $620,000 for the American Cancer Society. A whopping $240,000 of the total will be dedicated to the Hope Lodge Campaign, a nice chunk of change for the current fundraising campaign. The Hope Lodge is being built on the Mayo Clinic campus and will deliver respite for families coming to Jacksonville for loved ones undergoing cancer treatment at various area hospitals. The groundbreaking and opening are both slated for 2017. This year’s gala took place at the Morocco Shrine Auditorium and was held October 1.
