On Thursday, May 23, the American Cancer Society hosted "An evening with Quincy Jones & Friends" at Atlanta’s historic Fox Theatre.

The benefit concert, held in honor of the Society’s 100th birthday, featured legendary music producer and special guests, including James Ingram, Patti Austin, Siedah Garrett, Nikki Yanofsky, Alfredo Rodriguez, Allen Stone and the Pentatonix.

The American Cancer Society officially recognized its 100th birthday on May 22nd, and used the opportunity encourage people to join together, make noise and take action to finish the fight against cancer. The Society urges everyone to make some noise by making a donation at cancer.org/fight, participating in a local Relay For Life or Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in their community and/or enrolling in its groundbreaking Cancer Prevention Study-3 to find better ways to prevent cancer.

The American Cancer Society is a global grassroots force of more than three million volunteers saving lives and fighting for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. As the largest voluntary health organization, the Society’s efforts have contributed to a 20 percent decline in cancer death rates in the U.S. since 1991, and a 50 percent drop in smoking rates.
