Sugar Ray Leonard to Kick Off DCG Giving Fundraising Effort at NADA After Party in Las Vegas Hosted by the Dave Cantin Group

March 3, 2022

New York, March 3, 2022 – On Saturday night, March 12, DCG Giving Inc. – a new nonprofit formed by the Dave Cantin Group (DCG)  to fund child and adolescent cancer research and treatment – will launch its 2022 fundraising campaign harnessing the giving power of the automotive sector. The event will take place at DCG’s exclusive, invitation-only VIP afterparty at the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) 2022 convention at LAVO Nightclub in Las Vegas.

The event will feature a special keynote address by world champion boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard, followed by a concert from the world’s #1 Journey tribute band, Voyage.

All fundraising proceeds will support state-of-the-art research and treatment for children with cancer in communities nationwide, hallmarking DCG Giving’s mission to the 3 C’s: Children, Cancer and Community.

CureSearch estimates each year parents of more than 17,000 children aged 0-19 in the U.S. hear the words “your child has cancer.” According to the National Cancer Institute, cancer remains the leading cause of death by disease past infancy among children in the United States.

“The time is long overdue to increase the amount of funding channeled to childhood and pediatric cancer research,” says Chairman of the DCG Giving Board Michael Weiner, MD. “DCG Giving aims to disrupt this imbalance and prioritize necessary funding required so we can move closer to eradicating childhood cancers altogether.”

“The automotive and financial sectors are among the most generous when it comes to charitable donations,” says Dave Cantin, cancer survivor, philanthropist, and founder and CEO of the Dave Cantin Group. “While pediatric cancer research and new therapies are increasing, it’s not enough. I want to do something groundbreaking and rally the automotive sector specifically, along with other industries and individuals, to channel their charitable contributions so treatments can advance and save millions of youthful lives, transforming adolescent cancer patients into thriving adults.”
