Host an Event to Support Ellie Fund

Ellie Fund relies 100% on philanthropy to deliver services to breast cancer patients in treatment. Our revenue includes proceeds from our own large scale fundraising events (Red Carpet Gala, Real Golfers Wear Pink, and 5 for Ellie), personal donations, grants and third party events. We are only able to serve our patients because of the generosity of our community.

What is Third-Party Fundraising?

A third-party fundraiser is an event or effort that benefits Ellie Fund and is hosted by an individual or organization. Organizers of third-party events are 100% responsible for the planning, financial liability, and promotion of the event.
