This event has been canceled due to under purchasing of tickets. Thank you for your donations. All donations to meet our goal are appreciated.

The event is hosted by Lexi Mestas, a twenty-eight year old diagnosed in 2021 with the rare subtype of ovarian cancer, Low Grade Serous. Since then, Lexi has battled two recurrences and is beginning her third treatment option. This diagnosis hands young people with ovaries a prognosis of 10-years and currently only receives 1% of the research funding designated for ovarian cancer. Help us celebrate Lexi's annual Odd Ball by breaking our fundraising records, raising critical funds for groundbreaking research that can save and extend the lives of those suffering under this diagnosis. As usual, we encourage all attendees to wear a fun wig and even a costume. The bigger the better! Let's celebrate and create positive change!

Food will be catered in addition to a limited open bar from 6 - 8 PM and a donation-encouraged bar from 8 - 10 PM. Attendees will have the opportunity to dine, dance, mingle with fellow donors, and participate in the online auction which closes at the end of the party.

When: Saturday, October 22nd 2022 6 - 10 PM

Where: Nova Espresso, 306 St. Anthony St. Mobile, AL 36603

Attire: Costumes & fun wigs encouraged

Early Bird Tickets: $50 donation (limited number available)

Regular-Priced Tickets: $75 donation (available until day-of event)

STAAR exists to fund life-saving research for women with low-grade serous, a rare and severely underfunded ovarian cancer subtype.  Low-grade serous represents fewer than 8% of cases of ovarian cancer and disproportionately affects younger women.  Further, being a rare cancer means that private donations are critical to fund research.  More research means more time for adventures, more holidays, and more memory making!
