Be a Table Captain


Thank you for your interest in becoming a table captain for the 2015 Prostate Cancer Survivors Celebration Breakfast. You have a vital role at the event: bringing your friends, family members, colleagues and business associates to support you — and to support the Institute for Prostate Cancer Research.

Table Captains: First in Line

As a table captain, you have the first opportunity to reserve or purchase seats. You will register a table in your name, then you can fill it with your personal guests. Either pay for the table yourself as a table captain-supporter ($2,500 per table) or ask your friends and family members to pay for their seats ($250 per seat.) Learn more, below.

Please note that Monday, Nov. 23, 2015, is the FINAL deadline for table completion.


Follow the “Table Captain To-do List,” below. If you have any questions about this process, please don’t hesitate to contact UW Medicine Advancement at 206.543.7873 or

Invite your business colleagues, friends and family, and consider inviting guests who are passionate about finding a cure for prostate cancer.

Individual tickets to the breakfast are $250 and include your meal and a terrific program. A $2,500 table includes 10 individual tickets to the breakfast. For additional benefits associated with participation, please refer to the supporter/partnership materials.
