About the Lombardi Gala

Since 1986, the Lombardi Gala has provided direct funding to Georgetown Lombardi as it seeks to improve the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of cancer through cutting-edge basic, translational and clinical research, patient care, and community outreach throughout the Washington region.

The Lombardi Gala is an annual event dedicated to raising funds for cancer research for the Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center. This event features a cocktail reception, silent auction, awards presentation, and much more. Proceeds from the Gala directly fund world-class research leading to clinical trials and innovative new treatments that change the lives of people with cancer.

Under the Leadership of our 34rd Annual Lombardi Gala Chair, Liz Shepard, we raised over $1.1 million dollars in support of the Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center
