Scare Away Cancer returns to the former Anthony's Steakhouse in 2022. The property's new owners are preserving the event space, which means the original home of the annual Halloween fundraiser will see little if any change in atmosphere.
"We are thrilled," said Tony Fucinaro. "Scare Away Cancer is unique and when we learned Anthony's Steakhouse was closing, we were crushed. The fact we are returning is the best news possible for our sponsors and attendees."
The most significant change people will notice is the date. Scare Away Cancer 2022 is now on September 24, 2022.
"The new owners will be starting a significant remodel of the property in October so we moved the date up so we could keep the location," added Fucinaro. "We hope the remodel will be done so we can have an October celebration in 2023."
There is a current waiting list for tables to attend Scare Away Cancer. Openings for the event will be announced in the first week of August.
Make plans to attend the annual Boo Brew Friendraiser on July 21, 2022, at the MCL Construction Headquarters. The event is free (suggested donation at the door) and features beer and other refreshments.
2022 marks the 12th annual Scare Away Cancer celebration. Since 2010 we have raised over $1.2 million for cancer patients, families, and programs in the greater Omaha area. In 2021, we distributed close to $100,000 to 53 individual recipients. Scare Away Cancer also provided charitable care to patients and the Inner Beauty Salon at the Methodist Estabrook Cancer Center.
