This year marks the sixth anniversary of Fox Chase Cancer Center’s signature fundraising event—In Vino Vita! Since launching in 2014, this celebration has grown in size and impact, and evolved into a premier wine event for Philadelphia.

Join us on Saturday, April 6 at Vie for a festive and elegant evening featuring premier wine, great food, live entertainment, dancing, and both live and silent auctions of high-end wines and experiences to benefit research and patient care at Fox Chase Cancer Center.

*Premium ticket includes invitation to an exclusive dinner and wine tasting with In Vino Vita featured winemakers on Tuesday, March 12, 2019 and supporter recognition in the event program book.

The sold-out 2018 event was attended by the region’s most prominent healthcare, business, and philanthropic leaders and embraced by some of the world’s finest winemaking talent who participated and showcased their vintages. That same evening, In Vino Vita raised $1.7 million for Fox Chase! In Vino Vita sponsorships and proceeds have funded initiatives such as:

  • Purchasing 45 state-of-the-art recliners for our busy infusion room
  • A total renovation and expansion of The Marian and Emma Brungard Surgical Family Waiting Suite
  • Outfitting a state-of-the-art immunotherapy laboratory to discover new ways to harness our patients’ immune systems to fight disease
  • Pilot research grants for young investigators to propel new and innovative ideas forward
  • The Cancer Center Director’s Fund, a reserve which helps to offset funding gaps for various priority projects
  • Investing in new technology and equipment to enhance clinical care
