About A Night with the Stars

Please join us on November 4, 2022, for A Night With the Stars, Fight CRC’s annual community event to raise funds and awareness in the fight against colorectal cancer. You won’t want to miss our 1920s Speakeasy-themed evening. Proceeds from A Night WIth the Stars will be invested in colorectal cancer patient education materials distributed throughout our local Springfield community.

Unable to attend? You can also contribute to Fight CRC's impact by making a donation. All donations will be used locally to support Springfield initiatives.

On this night, we celebrate the dazzling stars of the colorectal cancer community: patients, survivors, and caregivers. The collective light of these stars burns bright as we celebrate and remember our relentless champions of hope. 

Fight CRC Board Members and leadership will captivate you with inspiring stories of what we have accomplished, all of which originated in Fight CRC’s home office of Springfield, Missouri. Here in Springfield is where we’ve united survivors, medical professionals, and advocates from across the country to train and empower champions. 

Fight CRC’s Missouri home base provides the foundation for us to accomplish our mission, and it means so much for us to celebrate with the support of our community. Thank you for locking arms with us in the fight against colorectal cancer and celebrating our successes along the way.

No one fights alone, and together at A Night WIth the Stars, we celebrate creating awareness about colorectal cancer screening and prevention, all while continuing to be relentless and raise funds for our research, advocacy, and survivorship efforts. 

We are excited for you to join us for A Night With the Stars, as we continue on our Path to a Cure for colorectal cancer. We hope to see you! If you are unable to attend, we gratefully and graciously welcome your donation.

Together, let’s shine bright!

History of the Event

It all started with a cancelled wedding due to COVID-19.

Elizabeth and Phillip on their wedding day in Vail, CO.

Fight CRC Senior Marketing Manager, Elizabeth and her now-husband, Phillip, planned their wedding for August 2020 at the Greenhouse Two Rivers in Springfield, Missouri. It was their dream wedding, with Elizabeth pouring her heart and soul into every detail, like most brides-to-be. Unfortunately, one week before the wedding, Elizabeth's grandparents contracted COVID-19 and the wedding was cancelled. Crushed by this decision, the couple made the most of an unfortunate situation, and eloped in the beautiful mountains of Vail, Colorado.

Once they returned from Colorado, they took a look at the logistics from their cancelled wedding. They'd already reserved a venue...a cake...tons of food...a DJ...none of it was refundable. And that's when it happened — the newlyweds made lemonade out of lemons and decided to donate it all to Fight CRC for a future event.

In December 2021, Fight CRC hosted the first-annual Night with the Stars using Elizabeth and Phillip's generous donations. It was a night unlike ever before, celebrating the colorectal cancer community and Fight CRC's impact in its home-base of Springfield. Elizabeth said it was everything she and Phillip had ever hoped for.
