Since 1992, we have been honored to help either partially or fully fund every advancement in treatment at the Baylor Scott & White Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center – Irving.
Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts is committed to supporting both local efforts and broader campaigns whose goal is the eradication of cancer. Through the collective efforts of the company’s hotels worldwide, Four Seasons annually raises significant funds and awareness for cancer research. The mission of Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas is to raise money for treatment and awareness of the disease among local citizens in Irving so that the most advanced care is available in the community. Since 1992, we have raised over $3.5 million for the cause.
2018 - 2020 Pledge
Over 24 months, Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas hopes to raise $300,000 to support the purchase of a Discovery RT, a CT scanner that is used on every cancer patient receiving radiation therapy. The Discovery RT provides the most efficient and accurate scans using 4D images.
