A Celebration of Hope
Stacey Case Hosts a "Celebration of Hope" to Raise Funds for Brain Cancer*

Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure's Celebration of Hope
Friday, May 11, 2022

The Case family is known to move, shake and stir things up. On May 11, 2022 Stacey Case was joined by some of San Francisco's preeminent business leaders, friends and family for an evening filled with dinner, dancing, mingling and fundraising. The "Celebration of Hope" raised $830,000 to directly fund brain tumor research - and an anonymous angel investor has pledged to match all gifts from the evening up to $1Million. Proceeds from this event benefit Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure, the organization initiated by Stacey's husband Dan Case after his diagnosis with brain cancer.

Before his death in June of 2002, Dan Case mobilized his friends and family into action. His legacy was celebrated with the kind of passion and commitment Dan brought to the organization and to each business deal and philanthropic effort he lead. Stacey Case hosted an impressive gathering of almost 200 supporters of brain cancer research in Atherton, CA. Joined by brother-in-law Steve Case and his wife Jean, the host committee for the event included the Who's Who of the Bay Area, including: Shawn and Brook Byers, Julia and Jim Davidson, Ann and John Doerr, Susan Ford Dorsey and Michael Dorsey, Pat and T. Jack Foster, John Fredenrich, Patricia and Mark Kvamme, Connie and Bob Lurie, Ann and Roger McNamee, Tamra and Kurt Mobley, Tina and Hamid Moghadam, Cristina Morgan and her husband Steve Bergren, Nancy and Larry Probst, Barbara and Larry Sonsini and many others. Guests also included award-winning San Francisco broadcast journalist, Jan Yanehiro, who delighted the crowd by serving as the live auctioneer.

"People want to be a part of making a difference in the lives of patients with brain cancer, and we are seeing hopeful signs of progress" said Kate Carr, President and CEO of Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure. "Just this week we announced a doubling of our support for this year's Project Award grants and we are encouraged by the early results of ongoing clinical trials for Avastin. It is evident that advancements are being made and that innovative research holds the potential to hasten the discovery of better therapies for patients."
