Houston’s fourth annual Corks and Forks fundraiser, hosted by the American Cancer Society, has been launched at the Hotel Granduca in Uptown Park.
Corks and Forks is an annual fundraiser which aims to raise money for the American Cancer Society, funding research, sharing expert information, supporting patients, and spreading the word about prevention.
The event will take place on October 3 at the Ballroom at Bayou Place in Houston’s Theater District. This year’s Corks and Forks will honor both Shelby Hodge and Shafik Rifaat – members of the Houston social community who have been affected by cancer.
Additionally, the launch evening on May 27 boasted authentic Italian cuisine from Hotel Granduca’s Ristorante Cavour Executive Chef Maurizio Ferrarese.
