2018 Supper Club

We invite you to join us at the Fourth Annual Supper Club at the Compound Restaurant on Wednesday, September 5. Enjoy a menu crafted by James Beard Award-winning Chef Mark Kiffin and learn more about the progress of the Cancer Foundation for New Mexico 10/10 Visionary Fund. Be among our 100 esteemed guests at The Supper Club as we launch a $100,000 Challenge Match for the 10/10 Visionary Fund. To reserve your space call Barbara at 505-955-7931 ext 1.

The 10/10 Visionary Fund:
During the past 15 years the requests for Cancer Foundation for New Mexico life-critical services has grown steadily. As the only local organization to provide a high level of consistent support services to
in-need cancer patients in northern New Mexico, we assisted with more than 21,000 patient visits in Santa Fe in the past 12 months. To date no patient who qualifies for our services has been turned away.

To plan for the future, in 2015 our leadership established the 10/10 Visionary Fund, so called because our goal is to raise $10 million in 10 years. The 10/10 Visionary Fund will build an endowment with earnings that will generate ongoing income to support the Cancer Foundation for New Mexico mission.

Each gift is a building block for the future. Contributions to this endowment will help save lives by ensuring that the good work of the Cancer Foundation for New Mexico will continue for as long as cancer exists. Click here for more info.
