Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy announces the postponement of the planned ACGT 2020 Awards Gala, originally to be held at Riverpark, on April 16th in New York City

Following the guidance of leading public health and medical experts to limit large gatherings of people in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy is postponing the ACGT 2020 Awards Gala until later this year.

We remain committed to advancing cancer cell and gene therapies for patients and look forward to rescheduling the ACGT 2020 Awards Gala in the Fall of 2020. Please stay tuned for upcoming announcements and invitations once a date has been chosen.

Ticket buyers may request a credit for the rescheduled Gala, request a refund, or may transfer their purchase to a donation to Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy. Please reach out to Ashley Slane, Foundation Manager, to process your request.

Please contact Kevin Honeycutt, CEO and President, with any questions or concerns. We look forward to seeing you later this year!
