Karmanos Cancer Institute’s Partners Night

The majestic lobby of the State Savings Bank in Detroit served as the venue for The Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute’s Partners Night. Partners is a 26-year tradition recognizing research excellence and raising funds to help advance cancer research. This year, Karmanos Cancer Institute and the Partners Committee honored the LaFontaine Family for their outstanding contributions to the cancer research field. Matt Melchior and Hilary Notaro co-chaired the evening which raised more than $350,000.
