Saint Patrick's Day Auction - March 18th
Our major fund-raiser for FCCC is the Saint Patrick’s Day Auction. This exciting event has produced an average of $60,000 annually. Because FCCC has virtually no overhead and pays no salaries or rent, all proceeds from the auction are returned to the community.
This all-volunteer non-profit group has provided financial help for cancer patients in Southern Southeast Alaska for over 20 years.
About $2,000,000 in personal grants has been disbursed in our community since FCCC was begun in 1995. By ‘community’ we mean Ketchikan, Petersburg, Wrangell, Metlakatla and the towns and villages on Prince of Wales Island.
These grants cover expenses for travel, lodging, medication, and equipment.
FCCC has given grants and donations for diagnostic and other equipment for Ketchikan Medical Center including:
- A Sentinel Cell Neoprobe for use in breast cancer surgery
- A Tissue Processor for the Pathology Department at KMC
- Stereotactic Breast Biopsy Unit in the KMC Women’s Diagnostic Imaging Suite
- A contribution to the KMC Infusion Suite for private, quiet chemotherapy
