American Cancer Society Holiday Wrappings Luncheon & Fashion Show @ Roland E. Powell Convention Center
Dec 8 all-day

American Cancer Society Holiday Wrappings Luncheon & Fashion Show

December 8, 2020

Fashion Show and luncheon with auction to benefit The American Cancer Society’s programs, research, and education at the Roland E. Powell Convention Center.

Friends will enjoy one of the area’s premier events by fighting cancer with fashion from more than a dozen area boutiques while enjoying a delicious warm plated lunch, humming along to live holiday music, and getting a great holiday deal through our GRAND Silent and Chinese Auctions, or perhaps a door prize.

For over a century, the American Cancer Society has fought for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. By taking what we’ve learned through research and turning it into what we do, the death rate from cancer in the US has declined steadily over the past 2 decades. As of 2015, the cancer death rate for men and women combined had fallen 26% from its peak in 1991. This decline translates to nearly 2.4 million deaths averted during this time period. Overall, more than 15.5 million cancer survivors in America will celebrate a birthday this year.

Mox Nox (or Soon Comes the Night)

May 28, 2020

Hosted at the Ocean City Performing Arts Center

  • Show Time: 8pm / Doors: 7:30pm
  • Tickets: $15 available at the Convention Center Box Office or online with Ticketmaster.

In a world of magical realism and rising water, two sisters are reunited at their family home. Mira, the caretaker sister, had to weather her mother’s death alone, and holds every childhood slight so close that she is literally burning from the inside out, shedding ashes and embers, as her wife, Amanda attempts to soothe her. Sister Deedee has returned to bring her fiancee, Pike, to safety, even as her memory is vanishing faster and faster. In this slowly drowning world, everyone is searching for higher ground. The sisters battle to the end, one unable to forget, the other unable to remember. Mox Nox is a play of lyrical magic and visual surprise, with characters who desperately need love and dry land. Mox Nox runs approximately 90 minutes without an intermission.
