Passport to Morocco

The event begins at 5:30 p.m. with a special VIP reception and dinner. Tickets are $250 per person and include a five-course dinner, hosted bar, awards cere- monies, silent and live auc- tions, entertainment, Monte Carlo gaming and dancing.

The Monte Carlo portion of the event begins at 8:30 p.m. and runs until midnight. Tickets are $60 per person and include gaming with local celebrity dealers, hors d'oeuvres, no-host bar, and entertainment. Sponsors to date include Crystal Creamery, Cal Farm, Bristol Meyers, Ramos Oil and American General Life. Talk 650-KSTE is the media sponsor of the event.

The event will honor UC Davis cancer patients and donors and help raise awareness of children's health issues. Eighty per- cent of the profits will benefit an endowment fund for the UC Davis Cancer Center and 20 percent will benefit sel- ected children's health organizations including, the M.I.N.D. Institute, Sacramento Food Bank's Mother-Baby Program and Sacramento Crisis Nursery.

"Passport to Morocco" marks the first special event hosted by the UC Davis Cancer Center, which is expanding its basic science and cancer research program. The center is preparing to apply for designation as a comprehensive cancer center from the National Cancer Institute.

"Our main goal is to gain new supporters for the cancer program, and to showcase UC Davis - what we're doing in cancer research and where we're going," says Jacquie Horan, development officer for the UC Davis Cancer Center. "And of course, we'd like to raise money."
