We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to our Presenting Sponsors, Dr. Richard and Christine Lublin, whose unwavering support has been instrumental in advancing the mission of the American Cancer Society's Bucket List Bash.
Since their involvement in 2017, Richard and Christine have been champions of our cause, standing with us in our relentless pursuit to end cancer as we know it, for everyone. Richard and Christine had distinguished professional careers. Richard was an accomplished attorney, and after retiring, he achieved great success as a television and movie actor. Christine pioneered her way in the tech industry pushing the boundaries of innovation and lead teams that left a substantial mark on the field.
Community has always been at the core of Richard and Christine's values, and their commitment to giving back has made a lasting impact on our organization. In 2022, Richard and Christine continued their exceptional dedication by co-chairing the Bucket List Bash alongside Anita Lovse. Their combined efforts, vision, and dedication ensured that the event not only met but surpassed all fundraising goals. The resounding success of the 2022 Bucket List Bash is a testament to the remarkable teamwork and leadership demonstrated by Richard and Christine.
In 2018, Richard chaired the Bucket List Bash and orchestrated the unforgettable appearance of the legendary Diana Ross. In 2021, Richard was selected by the American Cancer Society as the Honorary Chair of the Bucket List Bash gala for his continued generosity, leadership and passion towards the fight against cancer. In 2023, Richard was awarded the inaugural Bucket List Bash Hope and Courage Award by the American Cancer Society acknowledging his remarkable commitment to our lifesaving mission.
We are deeply appreciative of Richard and Christine Lublin's continued commitment to our lifesaving mission. Their support and leadership have been invaluable to the American Cancer Society, and the impact of their contributions extends far beyond the event itself. With their unwavering dedication, we are one step closer to realizing our vision of a world without cancer, and we look forward to many more years of partnership and progress united against cancer.
