The 35th annual Spark Gala was held over the weekend to benefit patient care and research at the UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center, one of the top 25 centers in the country.  The gala is an opportunity for the community to recognize advances made in the fight against cancer while raising funds to advance new research discoveries and improve patient services.  This year, the event raised $2.5 million for the Cancer Center, which will help launch the new Novel Cell Therapy Program.  

Attendees enjoyed dinner, entertainment and dancing, and had an opportunity to participate in a live auction.
