2013 Men's event

Jim Breuer

2013 5th Annual Men's Event

The 5th Annual Men's Event benefiting prostate cancer research and patient care at the Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson will take place on Thursday, November 14, 2013, 6:00 PM at the Prime Rib Restaurant in Philadelphia, PA.

The Men's Event is the Kimmel Cancer Center's headline event of the Fall season to raise awareness and much-needed funds to support:

  • pilot projects in prostate cancer research between multiple investigators
  • clinical research trials in prostate cancer
  • translational lab work in prostate cancer
  • the Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson's annual prostate cancer free screening event every September



The night will include a silent auction featuring unique holiday gifts, and entertainment by Comedy Central's "100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time," Jim Breuer of Saturday Night Live. Breuer can be heard on his weekly Sirius/XM Radio show "Fridays with Breuer," featuring guests such as Jerry Seinfeld, Bill Cosby, Chris Rock, Dennis Leary, and Jeff Foxworthy.


Associating your name with this important cause -- helping to defeat prostate cancer -- is a great way to increase your organization's visibility in the Greater Philadelphia, South Jersey and Delaware area.
