Events are the number one source of funds Chase After a Cure raises every year. Funds raised come by way of ticket sales, business sponsorships, merchandise, auction items, and restricted fund campaigns. Typically, CAAC hosts fundraisers during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in September. It also organizes an annual fundraiser gala each February in Charleston, S.C. Individuals, families and businesses are also encouraged to host their own fundraisers in support of CAAC.
