City of Hope is a National Association that Raises Cancer Awareness

About City of Hope

Ranked one of “America’s Best Hospitals” in cancer and urology by U.S. News & World Report, City of Hope is a pioneer in the fields of hematopoietic cell transplantation and genetics.   In layman’s’ terms: City of Hope provides cancer, diabetes and HIV research that is shared across the globe, transforming how patients are treated without killing good cells along the way! They streamline the process of taking cures from the lab to the bedside.

Based in Chicago, the Midwest Regional office manages fundraising and public awareness campaigns ranging from golf outings and Walks for Hope, to intimate dinners, breakfasts and large-scale industry events.

In addition to providing event printing, invitations, banners, signage and donor boards, Cushing has produced specialty bound books as sponsor recognition gifts for the Spirit of Life award dinner. We also produce sponsor banners for City of Hope’s Reach Social event.

“At Cushing, they understand the [client's] needs and combine the rare ability to bring to every project a fresh and creative eye while never losing sight of the overall business objectives. Cushing not only strive[s] for the perfect interaction, they achieve it, consistently.”
Signage to Support a Celebration

City of Hope’s Spring Charity celebration included a number of notable sponsors. To recognize contributions, the development team needed event display graphics to celebrate supporters at House of Blue’s, a popular venue in downtown Chicago.

Cushing recommended light weight, flexible signs, suitable to hang from the railings of each sky box. The signs had to be large enough to be viewed two to three flights up, produced in a short turn time from sponsor logos supplied from each company.

Produce approximately fifty 13 ounce vinyl signs with grommets in about 3-4 days.

Wonderful celebration with 25’ tall hanging vertical banners on each side of the stage. A few dozen banners hung throughout the House of Blues.


At the House of Blues, the evening’s entertainment featured a line up of rock bands composed of Real Estate professionals, sharing their passion in music to support a great cause.   Any event planner can tell you: last minute sponsors have to be recognized, the signs need to look great, and event printing deadlines do not change!
