Almost a thousand people attended the annual Discovery Ball Saturday.
The gala fundraiser supports the James P. Wilmot Cancer Center.
The Inspiration Award is the cancer center's highest honor. It was presented to Webster resident Georgiana Zicari. Zicari is a two-time cancer survivor and mother of two.
She was 15-years-old when she beat Hodgkin Lymphoma, and when Zicari was 29 she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer.
"When I was diagnosed for the second time there was no doubt in my mind that I was going to be treated at Wilmot," said Zicari.
Funds from the gala will help the Wilmot Cancer Center with local cancer care and research.
