There are currently no tickets available for this event, but you can still make a donation.


Thesecondopinion has been serving the California cancer community for over 50 years! The organization is committed to providing free, independent and comprehensive second opinions to adults diagnosed with cancer. We believe that all cancer patients should have the same access to medical resources as those who usually have broader access to medical care, in their language and at their level of understanding.

Each year we plan a benefit with the goal of raising $120,000, a quarter of our annual budget. With the funds we raise we are able to support cancer patients and their families by increasing their understanding of a complex medical diagnosis and alleviate uncertainty.

Please join us for a wonderful afternoon of celebration, education and information!
