Nearly 400 people, many of them cancer survivors, donned black ties Saturday night for the American Cancer Society ACAC Pavilion Ball.
The event's theme was "islands of hope" and a few local prominent cancer survivors served as co-chairs for the night.
"The whole idea is it's one day at a time, so you just suck the juice out of every glorious minute that you have," said survivors Jane Foy and Dick Mountjoy.
Between the $150 tickets, corporate sponsors and the silent auction, organizers were hoping to top last year's total of $139,000.
All money raised Saturday night will go to the American Cancer Society for research.
