The Seena Magowitz Foundation will hold its first live, in-person weekend event since the pandemic hit, “The Power of Us!” from March 4-6 2022.
The purpose of the event is to raise awareness of pancreatic cancer and to fund medical research that is focused on discovering innovative treatments and easy methods of early detection.
“We want to host this event in hopes of garnering increased attention for the challenge of pancreatic cancer,” says Roger E. Magowitz, founder and CEO of The Seena Magowitz Foundation. “We want to honor those who have fought and are still fighting pancreatic cancer, the worst of all major cancers with the lowest survival rate. We believe in the ‘Power of Us!’”
Here’s what you can expect:
Friday, March 4: A Spring Training Baseball Game will be held at Salt River Field in Scottsdale—Diamondbacks vs San Diego Padres. Tickets are available upon request. That evening, the weekend will officially begin at the Welcome Party at 6 p.m. with live music at The Camby Hotel on Camelback Road in Phoenix.
Saturday Afternoon, March 5: Watch the Spring Training Game—Diamondbacks vs Seattle Mariners—during lunch at Salt River Field in Scottsdale.
Saturday Evening, March 5: “Dinner on The Diamond” will be held right on Chase Field, Home of The Arizona Diamondbacks. A cadre of speakers who are at the top of their game in pancreatic cancer research will address attendees including Dr. Daniel Von Hoff of HonorHealth, Dr. Douglas Evans of Medical College of Wisconsin, and Dr. Peter Hosein of Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Miami. The menu will be “ballpark chic” with a bar at home plate.
Sunday Morning, March 6: Poolside hangout at the Camby Hotel. Enjoy the beautiful Phoenix weather before saying goodbye to friends and supporters.
“The Seena Magowitz Foundation is very personal to me,” says Arizona Diamondbacks president and CEO Derrick Hall. “When my father was diagnosed in 2010, he was Stage 4. I look now at where we are versus 10 years ago, and there is hope. It’s because of people like Dr. Von Hoff and Roger Magowitz that medical advancement is progressing at a more rapid pace.”
