More than 300 guests gathered at the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotelto walk the red carpet as the Esophageal Cancer Action Network’s (ECAN) Cancer DancerGala 2014 “went Hollywood.”

ECAN’s national spokesman, Stephen Bogart, the only son of film legends Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, was the evening’s special guest. The gala celebrated ECAN’s partnership with the estate of Humphrey Bogart, who died of esophageal cancer in 1957. As a nod to Bogie and old Hollywood, the event featured “all the stuff that dreams are made of.”

Guests enjoyed cocktails, dinner, dancing, live and silent auctions and the debut of the ECAN movie trailer, “Screenings for Screenings,” produced in partnership with the Bogart estate.

Cancer Dancer Gala 2014 raised more than $80,000 to help ECAN save lives by increasing awareness about the link between heartburn and cancer, promoting early detection and supporting medical innovation to prevent, detect and treat esophageal cancer, one of the nation’s fastest-growing cancer diagnoses.

“The gala was a wonderful celebration of the progress we’ve made in the fight against esophageal cancer,”said ECAN President and CEO Mindy Mintz Mordecai, who founded the Stevenson-based, national nonprofit organization in 2009 after her husband died from the disease.
