The 47th Annual American Cancer Society Cancer Ball will take place Saturday June 28th at The Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel in Asbury Park.

This year, it's a Masquerade Ball, and there is going to be amazing food and a lot of fun. It truly is one of the Monmouth County social events you absolutely don't want to miss. And of course, the cause is so wonderful.

Here are some amazing facts. According to The American Cancer Society website, from the early 1990's to 2005, overall cancer deaths have decreased by 15%, meaning that about 650,000 cancer deaths have been avoided. The American Cancer Society will continue to fight for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community.

The Cancer Ball Masquerade Gala will be a great fundraiser to help continue that battle, and we thank Mike Noone, chair for the Cancer Ball Business and Professionals Committee for joining us on the show this morning to get details on this amazing event.
