Community Events
The JCCF Community Events Program strives on the notion that individuals and organizations are able to create varying events confined only to their organizer's imagination for the purpose of promoting cancer awareness and raising funds vital to furthering cancer research at the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center.

The growing success of this program has included several new events with the anticipation of more to come. Currently, the Community Events Program consists of several golf tournaments, car shows, boutiques and a variety of other special events.
