Wings of Hope for Melanoma Galas

Wings of Hope for Melanoma galas are the Melanoma Research Foundation’s premier fundraising events. The 2012 galas together raised more than one million dollars for melanoma research! And the gala program continues to grow – in 2013, Philadelphia joined our list of gala cities! We currently host Wings of Hope for Melanoma galas in Denver, New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.

Join us at a Wings of Hope for Melanoma gala as we recognize true heroes in the melanoma community, raise awareness and much-needed funding for melanoma research. In addition to giving the MRF's Humanitarian Award during the galas, Courage Awards are also presented to individuals who have shown tremendous strength in their battles with melanoma. Be sure to visit this page often for updates about upcoming galas!
