Please join us on June 21, 2018 for the third annual Cruise for a Cause, our largest fundraising event of the year. Mezin-Koats Colon Cancer Research, in partnership with Masonic Cancer Center, University of Minnesota is thrilled to offer this wonderful evening to promote further discoveries in the fight to end colon cancer. With your help, MKCCR has raised over a half million dollars since its inception, funding three major research projects.

Celebrate the longest day of summer aboard the Majestic Star, a classic and luxurious 100-foot yacht docked in Stillwater, Minnesota, 525 Main Street. This year boarding begins at 5:45 pm and with departure at 6:30 (sharp), easing travel time from the Twin Cities. Our two-and-a-half hour voyage along the beautiful St. Croix River highlights the newly-open St. Croix Crossing Bridge. The cruise includes a buffet dinner, cash bar and updates from researchers and doctors from the U of M on the hard work taking place to end colon cancer.

This year the Cruise is free of charge, but we suggest and appreciate a $75 per person donation. We know our supporters are passionate about this cause so hope you are inspired to donate generously prior to the event. 100% of all donations go directly to Masonic Cancer Center, University of Minnesota and are tax deductible. Even if you cannot make it to the event, we encourage you to give. Donate Now!

Please feel free to share this with anyone enthusiastic about our cause. The event is open to anyone who would enjoy the occasion. For more information, call 612-799-6006 or email

Please join us again this year to continue the fight.
