The Desert Cancer Foundation held its Gift of Life Celebration with a Halloween Party at the Jim Houston Estate in Palm Springs on Nov.2nd. The presenting sponsor for this event was the Comprehensive Cancer Center at Desert Regional Medical Center. This gala was a spectacular evening with fine wine and delectable food. The menu was chosen by Host Jim Houston.

A silent auction of fine wines was part of the cocktail hour. A live auction was held that sold exclusive fine, vintage and very rare wines. Donors of the wines chose from their own private wine cellars especially for this event. All proceeds went to the Cancer foundation where one dollar will buy seven dollars of cancer treatments. Wines sold in the hundreds of dollars per bottle to wine lovers for this cause.

Desert Cancer Foundations mission is to assist Coachella Valley residents that have cancer and are unable to get medical care because they are can’t afford insurance or have financial limitations. The foundation helps people of all ages and all types of cancers. The foundation partners with doctors, hospitals, imaging centers and other health care facilities and professionals for quality health care.
