MESSAGE FROM EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Dear Friends, I am beyond pleased to welcome you to a very special and unique American Cancer Society Discovery Ball. This year’s format is unlike any other, but our purpose remains: supporting the Society’s Mission to save lives, celebrate lives and lead the fight for a world without cancer. Since 2009, thanks to our many supporters, this incredible event has raised more than $3 million to help fund research, to ensure patients have equitable access to screenings and care, and to provide support to those fighting the good fight. For more than 100 years, the American Cancer Society has been leading the fight to end cancer. Through the generosity of millions, we have helped usher in an era where more people survive cancer than ever before. By translating our research findings into action, we’ve seen a 29% decline in U.S. cancer death rates since the early 1990’s. And today, the USA celebrates 16.9 million cancer survivors! Proud? Yes! But critical work remains. Thousands of cancer patients have been negatively impacted by COVID-19, as well as our own ability to fight this disease from every angle. In fact, if trends continue, we may be forced to reduce our research investment by up to 50 percent – our lowest investment this century. At risk are more and better lifesaving treatments, and progress against this terrible disease. Every dollar counts and we remain grateful for your generous support. The Discovery Ball reminds us that we owe it to those who cancer took from us too soon, those currently fighting and surviving cancer, and to those who will experience a diagnosis in the future, never to give up on our Mission – regardless the circumstances. We could not lead this fight without each one of you, our superb volunteer leadership and the companies that continue to support this amazing event. Additional thanks must be given to: The Indianapolis ACS Guild, Discovery Ball Committee, and especially Monica Wight, this year’s Event Chair; Ascension St. Vincent for your ongoing partnership and support as this year’s Presenting Sponsor; and finally, Matt Koscal and Republic Airways for your incredible leadership and commitment while facing unprecedented challenges. We look forward to an inspiring and engaging evening. Please know how much we appreciate the show of support from each and every sponsor and guest. Thank you! Yours in the Fight, Brad Burk Executive Director American Cancer Society, Indiana

MESSAGE FROM PRESENTING PARTNER, ASCENSION ST. VINCENT Dear Friends, I am so pleased to welcome you to this year’s American Cancer Society Discovery Ball presented by Ascension St. Vincent. Like so much else this year, this evening’s event looks a bit different as we are gathering together in a virtual setting. However, no matter our location, we are all joined together with a shared purpose - to bring support, resources and hope to those living with cancer and fighting back against this horrible disease. Our goal this evening is to raise $400,000. The funds raised tonight will have an immediate impact throughout our community. Through your generosity, you are supporting researchers who are looking for answers, patients who will have better outcomes due to early detection,loved ones who are organizing and educating our communities on the importance of screenings, and healthcare heroes who provide compassionate care every day. Simply put, when you give this evening, you are giving hope. But I am also reminded of the Prayer of St. Francis, “For it is in giving that we receive.” Cancer has impacted each of us in some way. Your gift this evening supports mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, family, friends and neighbors by helping to keep the mission of the American Cancer Society alive. On behalf of our providers, care teams, patients and partners at Ascension St. Vincent and the American Cancer Society, I thank you for your generosity and for uniting with us in giving hope. Regards, Jonathan S. Nalli Senior Vice President, Ascension, and Ministry Market Executive, Ascension Indiana

WELCOME FROM EXECUTIVE CHAIR Dear Friends and Supporters of the American Cancer Society, This year has certainly been full of challenges, hardships and distractions, causing many plans to be canceled, events to be postponed and initiatives to be reimagined. While COVID-19 has put many things on pause, cancer unfortunately was not one of them. This year’s Discovery Ball looks much different than years prior, however, our mission to raise money and awareness for the American Cancer Society is more important than ever. Thank you for joining us virtually to show your support for cancer survivors, their loved ones, their care teams and all who strive every day to eliminate cancer through research, advocacy and quality healthcare. By participating in and donating to the Discovery Ball, you are joining in a celebration of lives, contributing to an immense cause aimed to eradicate this horrible disease that impacts so many of our loved ones. Year over year, the funds raised at the Discovery Ball have led to significant steps forward for research initiatives and direct care to those battling cancer. Your generosity and engagement with the 2020 Discovery Ball will move us closer to fulfilling that mission. Our goal is to raise $400,000 at the 2020 Discovery Ball. The American Cancer Society promises to be a great steward of your donations, which will be used toward three vital efforts: researching cures for cancer, screening and prevention awareness, and providing direct support for those battling cancer and their families that include programs and resources for assistance with insurance questions, rides to doctor appointments, free places to stay when treatment is far from home, guidance on treatment options, and advice on coping with side effects and emotional support. Since 1946, the American Cancer Society has invested more than $4.9 billion in cancer research, supporting the best scientists in the country on their quest to find more – and better – treatments, uncover factors that may cause cancer, improve detection and prevention, and enhance cancer patients' quality of life. Rest assured, your donation toward this event will have an immediate and lasting impact. Again, thank you for joining me in supporting the American Cancer Society and participating in the Discovery Ball. Let’s make it a year to remember for a positive reason. With your generosity, we can make 2020 a success not only for the American Cancer Society, but more importantly for the millions of Americans who are battling cancer. With gratitude, Matt Koscal Executive Chairman 2020 Senior Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer Republic Airways

WELCOME FROM EVENT CHAIR

What an honor it is to lead the 11th annual American Cancer Society Discovery Ball and what a year it has been for everyone! If this year has taught us anything other than America as a business, it is that public health issues have global reach. Within those public health issues, stands cancer, and we all know that it does not discriminate, nor has it let down. I am proud to stand alongside the women of the Indianapolis American Cancer Society Guild (IACSG), the Discovery Ball Committee, and the American Cancer Society staff, in taking us all on a Journey to a Cure! I would like to thank my co-chair, Mary Creazzo for being a significant help with this year’s planning and certainly with the shifts that had to take place along the way. She came to each meeting with such infectious enthusiasm! Thank you to each of the women of IACSG for your creative contributions and support during this year. A very big thank you to Matt Koscal for your leadership on the Board of Ambassadors and leading with such positivity and encouragement. Matt challenged everyone throughout the year, and it was a pleasure to join Matt in the charge to make a difference for the ACS. It goes without saying that the ACS staff are really the workhorses for tonight’s event. Thank you for working tirelessly to create a wonderful virtual program! This evening is possible because of our generous sponsors, donors, and volunteers. The legacy of those who have been impacted by the work of ACS are also to be deeply credited and appreciated. Upward and onward on our Journey to a Cure! Monica Wight

SPECIAL GUESTS Beairshelle Edmé, Emcee Beairshelle Edmé (PRONOUNCED: Beer-Shell Ed-May) serves as FOX 59’S First At 4 anchor & Newspoint at 11 anchor, while also reporting on various matters ranging from politics, law, and education. She’s excited to make Indiana home, and thrilled to tell the stories that matter. Prior to joining FOX59, Beairshelle worked as a weekend morning anchor for WNCN-TV in Raleigh, North Carolina, where she earned awards for her anchoring and reporting, plus an Emmy nomination for her reporting on the statewide teacher protests. During her time in the Tar Heel State, she also covered Hurricanes Matthew and Florence, the Amber Alert and death investigation of 3-year-old Mariah Woods, and the Confederate controversy. Beairshelle has also worked at WDTN-TV in Dayton, Ohio; and KMEG-TV & KPTH-TV in the tristate region of Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota. The award-winning journalist hopes to bring Hoosiers’ untold stories to the forefront, and when she’s not doing that, she’s either whipping up something in the kitchen or shouting at a TV during game either as a true fanatic or want-to-be coach! A proud native of Philadelphia, Beairshelle is an alumna of Loyola University Maryland. She is also a member of the National Association of Black Journalists.

Jarett Andretti Jarett Andretti is an American racing driver from Charlotte, North Carolina. He is the son of former IndyCar and NASCAR driver John Andretti and grandson of Aldo Andretti, Mario's twin brother. Andretti began his career in sprint car racing in 2010 and moved onto Supermodified racing in 2012. Andretti won the 2016 Lawrenceburg Speedway track championship in his sprint car. He made one Rolex Sports Car Series start in 2012. He started appearing on the USAC National Sprint Car, Silver Crown, and Midget scene in 2013 and competed in those series through 2017, focusing on the National Sprint Car category. Andretti won the USAC National Sprint Car Rookie of the Year title in 2014. He then dove back into sports car racing full-time making 10 starts in the 2018 Pirelli World Challenge, while still competing in 24 USAC National Sprint Car races. In 2019 he was focusing on the 2019 GT4 America Series, driving a McLaren for Andretti Autosport in their first foray into the series. On April 12, 2019 it was announced that he would make his first Indy Lights start at the 2019 Freedom 100, also driving for Andretti Autosport. Andretti graduated from North Carolina State University in 2015.

SPECIAL GUESTS Aldo Andretti Aldo and Mario rebuilt a 1948 Hudson Commodore into a stock car in 1959, and began racing it without telling their parents. They flipped a coin to see who would race in the first race. Aldo won the coin toss, the heat race and the feature. They each had two wins after the first four weeks. Aldo fractured his skull in a serious crash near the end of the season. He recovered from his coma, and he returned the following season. Aldo continued racing on the USAC and IMCA circuits, but in 1969 Aldo suffered severe damage to his face after crashing into a fence in Des Moines, and quit racing. His face had 14 fractures to his facial bones. In 1973 Aldo opened retail business, Andretti Firestone, in Brownsburg, Indiana, but later quit to establish a machine shop for hospital beds and tool manufacturers called Andretti Machine Engineering. Aldo is the father of John, and grandfather of Jarett, both of whom followed in his footsteps with accomplished racing careers.

Al Unser, Jr. Two-time Indy 500 winner Al Unser, Jr., a member of racing’s fastest family, was raised in the rugged West. An avid snowmobiler and outdoorsman, Al grew up watching his father, Al, Sr., a four-time Indianapolis 500 winner and his Uncle Bobby, a three-time Indy winner. Between them, the Unser’s have won the Indianapolis 500 a remarkable nine times. Known in the racing world as “Little Al” in deference to the career achievements of his legendary father, Al says, “he’s taught me everything I know, but he hasn’t taught me everything he knows.” In addition to Al’s two Indy 500 wins, he is a two-time CART champion (1990, 1994), two-time Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona winner (1986, 1987), and two-time IROC champion (1986, 1988). Al has also competed in NASCAR events, including the Daytona 500. Al Unser, Jr. has accomplished in one season what many drivers dream of achieving over their entire career. He embodies racing’s super competitive spirit.

Elizabeth Lee Band, After Party Entertainment Mary is a co-singer-songwriter with her partner in crime (and dad!), Bobby and they are the Elizabeth Lee Band. Their goal through their music is to create an atmosphere to connect. To connect with yourself, others, and music. Basically, we love music. We think it’s good for us all, and in our little broken and often hurting world, we hope hearing our music can bring you the atmosphere you need to connect with yourself, your friends, and the beauty of music.
