The 10th annual Uncork the Cure wine tasting and auction is Sunday at the Tampa Club. Tickets are available online and at the door, and proceeds will help fund research into the cure and prevention of childhood cancer.

The 1Voice Foundation’s 10th annual Uncork the Cure wine tasting and silent auction takes place Sunday (June 22), 4-7 p.m., at the Tampa Club.

The event is put on by the Krewe of Zingaro and will raise funds for the Children’s Cancer Research Group, a Tampa-based organization affiliated with the 1Voice Foundation. Both of these great organizations are dedicated to the prevention and cure of childhood cancer.

The auction will feature great trips and sports memorabilia, as well as other items for bid, with live music and wine and food.

Tickets are available online or at the Tampa Club door.

My family became acquainted with the 1Voice Foundation when my wife, Beth, began to work with executive director Mary Ann Massolio in 2011. We love and support their mission:

  • The Cause — Providing families with vital Information and resources about various forms of childhood cancer, treatment facilities and options.
  • The Care — Providing families with support and assistance, both emotionally and financially, during their battle against childhood cancer.
  • The Cure — Funding research that will lead to treatments that are less toxic to children and increase survival rates

One focus when it comes to research funding is the work of Cameron Tebbi, MD, Professor of Pediatrics and Director, Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology at the University of South Florida. Dr. Tebbi’s area of research — his passion — is the search for a vaccine for childhood leukemia. The Krewe of Zingaro has long been dedicated to supporting Dr. Tebbi’s important work.

Also, Mary Ann Massolio will travel next week with friends to Washington, D.C. to participate in Childhood Cancer Action Day on Capitol Hill. It takes place on June 24, which would have been Mary Ann’s son Jay’s 27th birthday. Mary Ann lost her son to childhood cancer when he was 9, and she and her family have dedicated themselves to this cause with a passion.

She and her party will tour the East Wing of the White House in the morning, then head to Capitol Hill to testify to Congressional staffers and the Senate about pediatric cancer issues.
