American Cancer Society Vintage Affair - Mobile, AL

Join in the Fight Against Cancer

American Cancer Society plans Vintage Affair Gala

Guests can experience one of Mobile’s premier philanthropic events as we join together to save lives and party for a cause. The American Cancer Society (ACS) will host the Vintage Affair Gala, presented by Lexus of Mobile, on Thursday, September 29 at the Alabama Cruise Terminal from 6-9pm.

Enjoy an evening filled with exquisite cuisine by Clifton Morrissette, fine wines from Red or White and the exciting sounds of the Crowned Jewelz Band. Sure to thrill are the live and silent auctions which include fabulous trips, estate jewelry and original local art featuring artist Ashley Terrell.
“Overall, 11 million cancer survivors in America will celebrate a birthday this year. The Vintage Affair committee thinks that’s a great reason to support this wonderful event, stated Blair Gewin, ACS Development Manager of Distinguished Events. Cancer is something that touches just about every person in our community, and the event is a great opportunity for all of us to get together to support the fight against this disease.”

Through fundraising events like the Vintage Affair Gala, the ACS continues to save lives and create more birthdays by helping people to get well and stay well, find cures, and fight back against a disease that has taken too many lives. For nearly a century, the American Cancer Society has fought for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. Through their efforts the ACS has contributed to a 15 percent decrease in the overall cancer death rate between the early 1990s and 2005. That means they’ve helped avoid about 650,000 cancer deaths and created the potential for more birthday celebrations.

Tickets for the event are $125 and can be purchased online at or by calling 251.344.9858.
