New Hope, PA (January 10, 2011) — The Bucks County Chapter, Board of Associates of Fox Chase Cancer Center was established in 1983 as a non-profit organization devoted to raising funds for cancer research and prevention for Fox Chase Cancer Center. This year, the Chapter will be hosting an elegant evening soirée, April In Paris on Saturday, April 2, 2011 at 7:00 pm. Taking place at the opulent Keenan Motors Mercedes-Benz dealership in Doylestown, April In Paris will be an unforgettable evening of cocktails, dinner, live music, dancing along with live and silent auctions. Guests will enjoy delicious cuisine by The Waterwheel of Doylestown and live music from Key Largo while helping to raise funds to fight cancer everywhere. This year’s event sponsor is Riggs Distler and the media sponsor is the Bucks County Herald. Tickets are $125/person and patron sponsorship starts at $300.

The Bucks County Chapter hosts several celebrated charity events each year including the Annual Holiday Art Show and Exhibition, Annual Golf Outing, and the largest fundraiser being held this spring, April In Paris. This new April benefit will take the place of the Annual Garden Party that has been held in June for the past 22 years. Last year, the Chapter contributed $165,000 for research and prevention at Fox Chase Cancer Center.
In 2009, Fox Chase opened a Radiation Therapy Facility in Buckingham Township. The facility, approximately 19 miles from the main campus, has provided Bucks County residents more convenient access to Fox Chase’s nationally recognized cancer treatment regimens, along with access to innovative care, clinical trials and all the resources of an NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center. The Buckingham building itself has integrated “green” design, bringing new, sustainable building technology into play.
Fox Chase Cancer Center is one of the leading cancer research and treatment centers in the United States. Founded in 1904 in Philadelphia as one of the nation’s first cancer hospitals, Fox Chase was also among the first institutions to be designated a National Cancer Institute Comprehensive Cancer Center in 1974. Fox Chase researchers have won the highest awards in their fields, including two Nobel Prizes. Fox Chase physicians are also routinely recognized in national rankings, and the Center’s nursing program has received the Magnet status for excellence three consecutive times. Today, Fox Chase conducts a broad array of nationally competitive basic, translational, and clinical research, with special programs in cancer prevention, detection, survivorship, and community outreach.
