As part of the event, TRCF will be offering a limited number of Sponsorship and Group Packages, VIP Tickets, and General Admission Tickets.

“The pandemic has been tough for many, particularly so for non-profits and more importantly to those they support. We witnessed these struggles firsthand with many of our scholars, considering the challenges with virtual learning and the lack of social interaction,” said Douglas Whittemore, Treasurer, and Co-Founder. “Being able to go table to table and thank our supporters for helping these survivors even in the midst of a global pandemic, and seeing the smiling faces of the teens being celebrated is a very thrilling and welcomed return.”

“With our organization being volunteer-run, we did not qualify for COVID assistance programs. We were worried how we could continue to fund these integral support programs to young cancer survivors” said Lindsay Whittemore, Executive Director, and Co-Founder. “Our corporate partners really stepped up in our time of need. Transitioning back to an in-person event for our largest annual fundraiser means we can focus on what is important, providing educational resources to allow cancer survivors to excel throughout their lifetime.”

Corporate sponsorships, group packages, VIP, and individual tickets are available now for purchase on TRCF website at
