The Immunotherapy Foundation (IF), a San Diego-based non-profit organization working to accelerate cancer immunotherapy research and cancer prevention programs, is hosting “Drive In to Drive Out Cancer” on Saturday, October 10th. The drive-in movie event will take place at the East lot at the Del Mar Fairgrounds (2260 Jimmy Durante Blvd, Del Mar, CA 92014) and will screen School of Rock, featuring Jack Black. Gates will open at 5:30 p.m. and the feature film will begin at 7:00 p.m. Three no-host food trucks will also be available on site to enhance the drive-in movie experience.
“We are so excited to screen School of Rock for a family-friendly evening to support cancer research,” said Fernanda Whitworth, Co-Founder of the Immunotherapy Foundation. “While we have postponed our annual Rock and Roll Avalanche to October 2021, we are excited to gather for a film that pays tribute to our unique rock and roll theme.”
Reserve your parking spot for $100 for a Family Night Out package. Families can also upgrade their spot to a Red-Carpet Experience for $500. There are also a limited number of opportunity tickets on sale, sponsored by John Matty Co., and a small silent auction featuring a 3-night stay at the exclusive Whitworth Family home on the La Jolla shores, a private chef cooking class and lunch by Chef Dan (the Whitworths’ private chef) and a weekend stay at the La Jolla Shores.

About Immunotherapy Foundation: Immunotherapy Foundation (IF) is a San Diego non-profit organization working to accelerate promising cancer immunotherapy research and advancing cancer prevention. Since inception in 2015, IF has acted as a catalyzer for biologically-sound but financially-starved bench science, accelerating promising science into therapies for patients sooner. IF’s co-founders, activist investor Ralph Whitworth and his wife Fernanda Whitworth, launched IF following recurrence of Ralph’s HPV+ oropharyngeal cancer. Their philanthropic leadership initiated a ground-breaking partnership between University of California, San Diego – Moores Cancer Center and the La Jolla Institute for Immunology. In 2018, IF commenced a pilot HPV educational programming with Project Concern International, with intent to scale findings to national and international sites. From launch, IF has co-fundraised $4.9M with its research partner organizations, advancing projects that have gone on to receive over $22M in additional funding. IF is a 501(c)3, and relies on your continued support to end HPV cancers in our lifetime. Learn more at www.JoinIF.org or call 858-704-3330.
