Nevada Cancer Institute Gala
It’s been a long time since I have put on a tie three times in three weeks. It must be the charity season.
Tonight, along with 900 other people we had the privilege of attending the Bond for the Cure, the 7th annual gala of the Nevada Cancer Institute.
Even though the economy is in the pits, it is heartwarming to see people accustomed to the "high-life" recognizing that we still must dig deep to search for the cure and to help the ailing.
Every community has its own Cancer Society. Here, in Nevada, we are working hard to make our institute one of the few premier facilities in the world. Every year we get closer to that goal.
It was quite fun meeting Larry King who has been the Master of Ceremonies all seven years. He certainly had a busy week.
