Cancer Center Luncheon
The Methodist Healthcare Foundation presents the Cancer Center Luncheon each year to benefit the education and research initiatives of the Methodist Healthcare Cancer Center in the treatment of all forms of cancer. Each year's luncheon features a well-known speaker, and past speakers include Julie Andrews, Tom Brokaw, Queen Noor of Jordan, Barbara Bush, Kathy Bates, Michael Douglas and more.
The 11th annual and most recent Cancer Center Luncheon was presented by Methodist Healthcare Foundation and The West Clinic. It was held on November 16, 2012 and featured Academy Award-winning actress, Diane Keaton. Ms. Keaton spoke to a sold out audience as she reflected on her life, values and upbringing, as well as her journey to becoming a successful actress. With a crowd of over 1,000 guests in attendance, Ms. Keaton shared her thoughts on gender and aging in Hollywood, being fearless, and balancing both work and family. All proceeds from this event benefitted the Methodist Cancer Center in Memphis, Tennessee.
The next Cancer Center Luncheon will be held in November 2013 and will feature another spectacular and inspiring speaker. To purchase tickets or for additional information, please call the Foundation office at 901.516.0500.
