Laughter, tears, sisterhood.

Our annual fundraising event for Gilda’s Club Quad Cities is back and better than ever. Diamonds and Divas is a night out for ladies to enjoy each other’s company, act silly, bid on girly silent/live auction items, and let loose. What happens at Divas stays at Divas!

All funds raised at Diamonds and Divas stay in the Quad Cities to fund psycho-social support and resources to individuals and families coping with cancer.

This year we are thrilled to have comedian and V.I.P Diva, Tammy Pescatelli. Tammy Pescatelli is an American stand-up comedian. Tammy learned her skills growing up in a large Italian family outside of Cleveland and has married into an even bigger Italian family. Her most recent comedy special, Tammy Pescatelli: Finding the Funny (2013) was released recently in an exclusive deal with Netflix, which also hit number 3 on the charts on iTunes.

She won Comedy Central’s Stand-Up Showdown (2010) and was a finalist on the second and third seasons of Last Comic Standing (2003). She has performed on talk shows such as The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1992), The Talk (2010), and The View (1997). She has also been a guest a number of times on the syndicated show Comics Unleashed (2006), and was chosen for their “Best of the Best” worldwide top selling DVD.

 Divas get ready! We’ve got a great party planned and now that most everyone is vaccinated we are so ready to celebrate safely and raise money for individuals and families in our community coping with cancer. We continue to provide  – at no charge – services and support so that no one faces cancer alone in the Quad Cities region.

Gilda’s Club Quad Cities ensures that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community.

Our programs serve the whole family, not just the person living with cancer. All programs at Gilda’s Club are offered free of cost and are research and evidence based. Services include social and emotional support, education, healthy lifestyle activities and children/teen support.

The funds raised at this event remain local to our community and support the mission of Gilda’s Club Quad Cities.

We are so grateful for our Divalicious and Fabulous Sponsors:
