promoting innovative cancer research


The Return of The Lorax:  


      “If there be any truer measure of a man than by what he does, it must be by what he gives.” 
Robert South

Interspersed with the fun and laughter, there will be brief presentations.  

Dr. James P. Thomas, Medical Director of MCW's Clinical Trials Office, will make an interesting presentation on clinical trials and explain how they bring potentially life-saving treatments to patients with all types of cancer, many of whom have few if any remaining treatment options. 


We hope to continue to build on the remarkable success since our inaugural event in 2013.  By the end of 2016, we had proudly donated $165,000 to the Clinical Trials Office at the Medical College of Wisconsin. 

Tickets are priced at $80 each, with $40 being tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.  There are two options for purchasing tickets for the Honoring The Lorax dinner:  i)  online through a credit card, by using PayPal;  or ii)  by mailing a check.  There will be no actual paper tickets.  An email will be sent confirming that you have purchased tickets and identifying the number of tickets purchased.
