This year marks the ninth anniversary of Fox Chase Cancer Center’s signature fundraising event—
In Vino Vita! This festive celebration features cocktails, dinner, live entertainment, and dancing, as well as live and silent auctions of high-end wines and experiences.


The “Sim Lab” is an immersive, experiential nursing training facility tailored to an oncology environment that will bring many benefits to providers and patients, keeping Fox Chase at the forefront of training and medical care.

Our nursing program has an unparalleled track record of recognized excellence. The Sim Lab will build on that foundation of excellence, train new generations of nurses, and continually raise the bar for how nursing is practiced at Fox Chase. For those already in the field, the lab will provide innovative opportunities to learn new techniques and skills, implement new clinical practices, and initiate their own clinical research.

By participating in the 2022 Special Pledge—and any aspect of In Vino Vita, you provide critical support for this transformational investment in improving the cancer patient experience and advancing Fox Chase’s vision of becoming a hub for nursing and patient care innovation.
