The Chris4Life Colon Cancer Foundation, in partnership with The Mark Hulkower Foundation is pleased to host its 2nd Annual Hulkower Tailgate Party on Wednesday, May 22nd at the NFL Players Association (NFLPA) in Washington, D.C. The Hulkower Tailgate is a cocktail party fundraiser that will include a silent auction, invited VIP guests and several NFLPA members. This high-end event brings together patients, survivors, families, doctors, advocates and special guests to raise funds and awareness for colon cancer treatment and prevention. Over 250 guests attended last year’s event raising $70,000.
The Chris4Life Colon Cancer Foundation and The Hulkower Foundation recently formed a partnership to help raise funds for colon cancer awareness and research to find a cure for the disease.
Nancy Hulkower formed The Hulkower Foundation in memory of her husband and prominent Washington, D.C. Attorney Mark Hulkower, who passed away from colon cancer in February 2011. He was 53 years old. He had been an Assistant United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia from 1989 to 1995, where he handled a number of prominent cases, including the espionage conviction of former CIA intelligence agent Aldrich Ames. He was then a partner at Steptoe & Johnson for 16 years, where he was head of the firm’s white-collar criminal defense group and won acquittals in a number of high profile cases, including the prosecutions of former Teamsters Union president Ron Carey and former Tyco General Counsel Mark Belnick. Known for his brilliant examinations and persuasive advocacy, he was consistently recognized as one of the top trial lawyers in the country. Chris4Life and The Hulkower Foundation alliance will help expand the reach in helping raise money for colon cancer.
Silent auction items up for grabs ranges from vacation homes, spa days, dining, entertainment experiences, to autographed sports memorabilia.
Tickets to the event are $200/per person. Proceeds from the event will support The Mark Hulkower Fund at the Ruesch Center for the Cure of Gastroentestinal Cancers at the Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center and cutting edge public awareness campaigns throughout the country.
