The Washington region’s most generous allies joined together for an evening in blue to raise funds to end colorectal cancer in our lifetime, when the Colorectal Cancer Alliance hosts its annual Blue Hope Bash gala on Saturday, November 2, 2019.

The event celebrated the Alliance’s 20th anniversary and raised funds to support its efforts to increase awareness and screening, care for patients and their families, and fund critical research.


Craig Melvin shared on the Today Show his connection with the disease when his brother Lawrence, was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer at age 39.

Since the event’s inception in 2010, it has raised more than $8 million. The evening featured entertainment by the world-famous Jersey Boys, live and silent auctions, as well as the first-ever Bash After Dark party.

Colorectal cancer is a potentially fatal disease that is mostly preventable. The Colorectal Cancer Alliance raises awareness of preventive measures; provides support for patients, caregivers, and survivors; and inspires the efforts that fund critical research—all to end colorectal cancer in our lifetime. We continue to have aggressive, and important, goals. To date, more than 800,000 people have turned to the Alliance. 

The Blue Hope Bash event series is the premier fundraiser of the Colorectal Cancer Alliance. The Bash occurs in cities across America to celebrate survivorship and remember loved ones.
