Orange County, CA
In the spirit of celebration and change, Envise, a leading building systems integrator, is pleased to announce The Greatest Gatsby, a roaring 20s inspired fundraising event designed to highlight the many ways The American Cancer Society (ACS) is making great strides towards the fight against cancer. With more than 250 guests expected to attend on Saturday, September 17, at the Island Hotel in Newport Beach, California, the event will support and contribute to the ACS Making Strides for Breast Cancer program, as well as the society’s goal of adding more birthdays to those afflicted with cancer.
“We are thrilled to have the support of Envise in the fight against breast cancer and look forward to a fun-filled evening at The Greatest Gatsby,” said Maya Alostaz, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event manager for The American Cancer Society. “Events such as this remind us that we can be a part of the great undertaking of eliminating cancer.”
The Gatsby inspired event will involve a champagne greet, three-course dinner, casino night, silent and live auctions, entertainment, and dancing. Attendees also will be able to learn more about various ACS programs such as research, education and emotional support provided to not only the cancer patient but their loved ones as well.
In addition to hosting The Greatest Gatsby, Envise is an active partner in The American Cancer Society. Payman Farrokhyar, Vice President and Southern California Branch Manager of Envise, was recently nominated as a member of its newly launched 2016 Real Men Wear Pink campaign. Farrokhyar will be one of 12 men making up the inaugural team serving as ACS ambassadors in the Southern California region. In addition to fundraising, the team will be bringing with them the male perspective in support for breast cancer, along with raising awareness that breast cancer also affects men. Farrokhyar has been involved with The American Cancer Society for more than a decade, supporting the organization in various capacities; most recently joining the Orange County ACS Regional Council.
“Envise is committed to raising awareness and funds for breast cancer research and support,” said Payman Farrokhyar, Vice President and Southern California Branch Manager of Envise. “With so many individuals who have been personally impacted by the disease, we look forward to hosting The Greatest Gatsby and supporting The American Cancer Society in its fight to end cancer.”
