A donation to Gene Upshaw Memorial Tahoe Forest Cancer Center ensures essential program offerings for cancer patients in our community. Gifts can be directed specifically to your request. Let us help you design a special gift through private memorials, grants, local fundraising events, or other tax deductible gifts.

Fundraising Events

The Tahoe Forest Health System hosts two important fundraising events that benefit patient and family programs at the Gene Upshaw Memorial Tahoe Forest Cancer Center.

The Best of Tahoe Chefs is an annual gala event featuring elegant dining and dancing and the opportunity to bid on amazing culinary experiences offered by the best chefs in the region.

The Gene Upshaw Memorial Golf Classic gives golfers the chance to pair with NFL greats and other celebrity golfers for this annual 2-day tournament. 

Be a Cancer Center Volunteer!

Volunteering can be a rewarding experience, and a wonderful way to help cancer patients in our local communities.

Many opportunities are available, and you’ll receive full training, flexible schedule options, and the satisfaction of knowing that you made a positive difference in someone’s life.
