BREVARD COUNTY • VIERA, FLORIDA — The Space Coast Cancer Foundation’s 9th Annual Daffodil Gala to benefit Brevard County cancer patients in need of financial support was a tremendous success on Saturday evening.

Held at the spectacular new Terminal 1 at Port Canaveral, the elegant and enjoyable Gala sponsored by VITAS Innovative Hospice Care was attended by more than 200 generous guests from all walks of life.

The guests were dressed in Rock-N’-Roll themed clothing and the silent auction, dancing and delicious food was enjoyed by all in attendance.

Vitas Innovative Hospice Care was the gala’s Presenting Daffodil Sponsor. The Space Coast Cancer Foundation is the fundraising and charitable arm of Space Coast Cancer Center, which houses a comprehensive network of services so patients may concentrate on their road to recovery.

HOPE, HEALTH & HEALING epitomizes Dr. Richard Levine’s professional and charitable credo. Dr. Levine, a Space Coast Humanitarian, above with his wife Lynn, founded the Space Coast Cancer Foundation in 2006 with a mission to assist cancer patients and their caregivers in the local community with the financial and emotional demands that are associated with the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. To further that goal, the Space Coast Cancer Center Foundation will host its sixth annual Daffodil Gala in August, which is a celebration of life for cancer patients and those who have been touched by the disease.
