"During the evening, as clips were being shown about these children, kids whose lifeline is directly connected to the generous donations to ISCC, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. How could one not be touched by those soulful eyes and hearing a voice that said, “I will be a doctor/ a teacher/ a scientist when I grow up?” I truly felt that my donations will ensure this phrase begins with the word “when” and not “if”." ~ Michelle V.
"Thank you ISCC, it was a positive & fantastic event." ~ Joan C.

A Night of Tribute to Angels
Each year ISCC holds an annual fundraising gala to benefit children with cancer. This is the biggest fundraiser of the year for ISCC. Dedicated supporters travel from all over the United States to attend the gala, which is usually held in October or November each year.
International Society for children with Cancer held its seventh annual gala and tribute in benefit of MAHAK children battling cancer on November 15, 2014 at Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills. This Tribute was a very special milestone celebrating ISCC’s tenth anniversary. This sold out event was attended by over 800 devoted supporters and donors whom traveled across the country and the globe to attend this memorable evening.
This year’s gala was truly the most memorable and heartwarming event yet. At this event ISCC was able to raise more than $620,000 which equals annual funds to support more than 310 cancer stricken children and their families.
The event was hosted by Mrs. Shahrzad Ardalan and Mr. Maz Jobrani. At this very special event the key note speakers were Mrs. Fereshteh Tavakoli co-founder of ISCC, Mrs. Saideh Ghods, Founder of Mahak and Dr. Javad Karbassizadeh founder of Mahak hospital. The entertainment for the evening was a performance by the legendary singer Mr. Faramarz Aslani and his band including Mr. Babak Amini.
One of the attendee said “I truly look forward to ISCC’s gala each year; I can always count on the event being heartwarming, organized and entertaining.”
Another attendee said” One of the most beautiful evening I have experienced in a longtime with my family and friends. This year I really enjoyed the 10 year anniversary books given to the attendees. The organization is very transparent and it gives me comfort to know where and how my money is spent. ”
We appreciate all who honored us with their presence and look forward to welcoming all our patrons at gala 2015.
