“It was an honor to attend this year’s BasketBall Gala honoring legendary coaches and ACS supporters Fran and Ree Dunphy and Phil and Judy Martelli.

Over the years, they have been incredible ACS ambassadors and helped expand the impact of our Coaches vs. Cancer program tremendously.”

“The 20th Anniversary Coaches Vs. Cancer BasketBall Gala honoring Phil and Judy Martelli and Fran and Ree Dunphy was held this past weekend in Philadelphia. The event brought together business, healthcare, and philanthropic leaders for a night meant to celebrate our honorees while raising money to support the work of the American Cancer Society.”
