Party Under the Stars


The Florida Cancer Specialists (FCS) Foundation is proud to announce another successful Party Under the Stars event was held on January 27th, 2018 at the Fete Catering & Ballroom and raised more than $200,000, with all proceeds going to the Foundation. This year, the fundraiser honored FCS Foundation Board Chair Brad Prechtl, who also serves as FCS CEO, and his wife Terri Prechtl, who is the FCS Foundation Lead Patient Support Volunteer at the Lakewood Ranch location of Florida Cancer Specialists. Three FCS physicians, Drs. Richard Brown, Anjan Patel and Miguel Pelayo, served as honorary chairs of the event along with co-chairs, Celgene representative Kim Wyar and Genentech representative Dwight Henry.

The festive evening “under the stars” featured music, dancing, dining and a silent auction with several highly coveted prizes. Money raised is earmarked for patient grants, which provide financial assistance for non-medical living expenses to qualified cancer patients who are currently undergoing treatment in Florida. The FCS Foundation’s overhead is paid by the physician partners at Florida Cancer Specialists, so 100% of donations (net event expenses) will benefit cancer patients in need.
