Garding Against Cancer 2nd Annual Signature Event

Saturday, May 5

Last year’s country theme was such a hit so we’re bringing it back — with a fun twist! Get ready to dust off your finest western wear and start practicing the Texas two-step because you won’t want to miss this signature event — — complete with delicious dining, one-of-a-kind silent and live auctions, lively entertainment, and more. Please mark your calendars now and check out our sponsorship opportunities.

This year’s featured speaker, Jason Gay, is the sports columnist for the Wall Street Journal and a 1992 graduate of the University of Wisconsin–Madison. He is the author of the New York Times bestseller Little Victories: A Sportswriter’s Notes on Winning at Life. He lives with his wife and children in Brooklyn, New York, but would prefer to live in Madison, except in January.
