The Skin Cancer Foundation Champions for Change Gala

The Champions for Change Gala is The Skin Cancer Foundation’s signature fundraising event. Each year, the Foundation honors Champions for Change – the individuals and/or corporate supporters committed to the organization’s goal of changing behaviors and saving lives through skin cancer education.

The Skin Cancer Foundation’s 2023 Champion for Change honoree is Tommy Bahama. Since May 2021, Tommy Bahama’s Volunteer Donation-at Checkout Campaign has raised more than $400,000 in support of The Skin Cancer Foundation’s education programs. Tommy Bahama CEO Doug Wood will accept the award.

The Foundation will also present the Media Impact Award to Jane Brody, Personal Health Columnist for The New York Times (Retired).
