Red hot evening for a cool cause

The UNC Lineberger Ball: Fire & Ice was held on April 14, 2012 at the Chapel Hill Country Club to support cancer treatment, prevention and research in the community.

Fire and Ice LogoSince its inception, this event has raised over one million dollars to benefit UNC Lineberger, and this year's attendees continued to help fuel the fire for cancer research.

Party-goers dressed in oranges, reds, blues and grays enjoyed food, dancing and music by DJ A-Minor in addition to a candy buffet sponsored by Performance BMW and a photo booth sponsored by Eurosport. Electronic bidding was introduced at last year’s event and was provided again this year for the silent and live auctions. After a red hot evening of fun, guests cooled down with a swag bag of goodies sponsored by Finn Facial Plastics. Much thanks to  the Chapel Hill Herald, WCHL/Chapelboro, Chris & Ann Cox, West End Wine Bar, L & N Andreas Foundation, simplicity event design, SKANSKA, Butch and Tammy Davis and to all of the sponsors of this year's event!

Guests attending Fire and Ice had the opportunity to purchase snowball ornaments  in honor or in memory of a loved one. These personalized ornaments were displayed at Fire and Ice. (See the column on the right for the names of those who were honored or remembered in this way.)

UNC Lineberger is grateful for the continued support it receives every day in the fight against cancer and every year at this event.
