The event raised $150,000 this year, bringing the eight year total to $1.35 million.
Denver Nuggets coach, two-time cancer survivor, and UNC basketball alumnus George Karl was among the guest speakers along with Ted Seagroves, a longtime friend to Williams and a pancreatic cancer patient at UNC, and his surgeon HJ Kim, MD.
