Doris Ital­ian Mar­ket & Bak­ery re­cently teamed with the Greater Sunrise Cham­ber of Com­merce to host a “Wine & Food Gala” in sup­port of the Amer­i­can Can­cer So­ci­ety’s Re­lay for Life. The evening’s at­ten­dees helped raise more than $1,600 for the non­profit.

“Our Wine & Food galas have al­ways been a great op­por­tu­nity to help raise money for a lo­cal non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tion,” said John Al­fano, pres­i­dent and CEO of Doris Ital­ian Mar­ket & Bak­ery. “Part­ner­ing with the Sunrise Cham­ber of Com­merce al­lowed us to el­e­vate our in­flu­ence and in­crease the money we raised. Can­cer has un­for­tu­nately im­pacted so many of us. We are hon­ored to do our part in sup­port­ing Amer­i­can Can­cer So­ci­ety’s mis­sion to save mil­lions of lives.” Ev­ery year more than 4 mil­lion peo­ple glob­ally raise funds and aware­ness to save lives from can­cer by par­tic­i­pat­ing in “Re­lay for Life” events. These are the sig­na­ture fundraiser for the Amer­i­can Can­cer So­ci­ety, each unique and spe­cial to its com­mu­nity.

“This is the sec­ond con­sec­u­tive year we’ve worked with Doris Ital­ian Mar­ket, and once again it has been a huge suc­cess for Re­lay for Life,” said Kathy Lad­wig, of the Greater Sunrise Cham­ber of Com­merce. “Doris’ is one of the most valu­able busi­nesses in Sunrise be­cause of the com­mit­ment and sup­port to our com­mu­nity and sur­round­ing ar­eas. We’re proud to join forces with them for such a great cause.”
