7th Annual Hearts and Hope Gala
February 9, 2019
On February 9, Epic Experience is hosting its 7th annual Hearts and Hope Gala to help support
the adult cancer community. At this event, we come together to celebrate cancer thrivers and to
raise money to send more thrivers to camp for an unforgettable week with Epic Experience.
The program includes an inspiring presentation from an Epic camper, live auction, dancing and
photo booth opportunities. Attendance is expected to be 225 attendees plus 20 volunteer staff.
Price of tickets is $175 per person and any cancer survivor can attend for $125.
This event will be raising funds for Epic Experience, a Colorado nonprofit that offers free
week-long adventure camps to adult cancer survivors. Through the outdoor activities and group
discussions, Epic seeks to support survivors physically and emotionally as they move beyond
their cancer diagnosis. One camper had this to say about her experience: “Epic helped me
figure out there’s so much life beyond cancer. There are so many others who understand and
can connect with your experiences and stories. Even when your struggle seems so personal,
there is a whole network of people—from Mama Lou to your fellow campers to the entire alumni
network to reach out to.”
