Heartland Cancer

Heartland Cancer Foundation will help local cancer patients through its third annual Mardi Gras Casino Royale on Friday evening, Feb. 9 at Wilderness Ridge. This was a scene from the group's first-ever event, held in 2016 at the Rococo Theatre, 13th and P streets.


Heartland Cancer Foundation will raise money to help local cancer patients at its third annual Mardi Gras Casino Royale on Friday evening, Feb. 9 at Wilderness Ridge in southwest Lincoln.

In the past, the event has been attended by 300-plus area business leaders, physicians, and philanthropists. This year, activities from 7 to 10 p.m. will include live jazz music, heavy hors d’oeuvres, casino gaming tables, cash bar, and silent auction.

VIP after-party

From 10:30 to 11:30 p.m., the VIP after-party begins, featuring the local band Thirty Second Hangover, light hors d’oeuvres, socializing with special guests, gaming tables, and a chef’s dessert presentation.

Event-only tickets are $100 each; event + after-party tickets are $125. Sponsorships are available and include tickets and logo recognition on banners and materials. Tickets and sponsorships may be purchased at www.wedoauctions.net/MardiGras, or by calling the Foundation office at (402) 261-9974. Space is limited; early reservations are encouraged.

Your dollars at work

Heartland Cancer Foundation supports local cancer patients by providing gas cards, house payments, car payments, medical supplies, and assistance with medical expenses. “Many cancer patients in Lincoln and surrounding counties have no health insurance, or are underinsured. They must choose between paying for food, heat, and gasoline, and paying for necessary cancer care and medications,” said Heidi Moyer, Heartland Cancer Foundation development director.

“But they shouldn’t have to choose. With your help, Heartland Cancer Foundation will continue to provide immediate and practical assistance for cancer patients in our community, so they can focus on recovery.”
