First City Council on Cancer

Each year the Alaska REALTORS® partners with the host association to raise funds for a local charity. This year the Southeast Alaska Board of REALTORS® is raising awareness and funds for First City Council on Cancer. The council is a community based non-profit organization dedicated to reducing the financial and emotional impact of a cancer diagnosis for individuals and families of Ketchikan and its outlying communities through the following activities: ensuring adequate access to treatment and cancer support services for the medically indigent; assisting with community and area wide educational initiatives concerning cancer therapy; facilitating local support groups; and establishing fundraising events to help support outreach services.”

During the convention, volunteers will be selling 50/50 tickets. See the program for the dates and times. This is an organization our members feel strongly about supporting, especially for those in need.
