ACS slates Imagination Ball for March

Jacquie and Curt Koon, 2020 Grado Award honorees.

The spirit of celebration is always in the air of beautiful Marco Island, but the evening of March 6, will bring a whole new meaning to that essence. Please join us at the JW Marriott Marco Island as the American Cancer Society presents “A Celebration for a Cure,” the 2020 Imagination Ball.

This celebration of life will feature both live and silent auctions, fine food, music and so much more. The celebration will burst with hope and good cheer as the prestigious Grado Award is presented to Curt and Jacquie Koon of CJ’s on the Bay in honor of their dedication and support of the American Cancer Society.

The gala fundraiser is chaired by Debra Shanahan for the eighth consecutive year.

For the past three consecutive years, Grado Award honorees Curt and Jacquie Koon have generously sponsored the ACS Imagination Ball by welcoming the executive committee to CJ’s on the Bay for their meetings. Their dedication and commitment extend far beyond that. Curt and Jacquie continuously exhibit a pay it forward attitude in the countless things that they do for our community. They recognize the efforts and accomplishments of the American Cancer Society in the quest for a cure. The couple elaborates “It feels good to be a part of the solution. Today we know far more cancer survivors than those who have lost the battle.”
