Golf Cart Parade

  • Wear your new red Gilda's Club T-shirt ($10, order it from Thea) and bring a chair, water and sunscreen.

  • Meet us at 73350 El Paseo (just west of Lupine) in front of Suite 207.

  • Parade begins at 1:00pm, but come EARLY to find parking and our location.

  • Or, park at Gilda's Club and walk over with us!  A group of us will be decorating the cart at Gilda's at 9:00 am, and we will walk to the parade at 11:00 am.

  • Another group (primarily good-sport family members of staff) will stake out space at the address on El Paseo at 9:00 am.

  • Feel free to help us at either position. The human place-holders will certainly appreciate the extra bodies!

  • Any questions, please give Thea a call at (760) 770-5678

Annual Survey

On an annual basis, Gilda’s Club asks those who have used our services to complete a Member Satisfaction survey to help us evaluate the effectiveness of our programs. This year, we have finally gone high-tech and our survey in online!

We have also joined forces with our other California affiliates of Cancer Support Community and we are all using the same survey format, so please be sure to select "Gilda’s Club Desert Cities" when you get to the section that asks which facility you attend.

The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete. Click Here to access our online survey.

Your feedback is vital to us. We are a non-profit organization and our services are provided at no charge to community members. In order to provide our free-of-charge services, we rely on the generosity of individuals, foundations and corporations for contributions, including: general donations, memorials, tributes, wills, bequests, grants, sponsorships, matching gifts, in-kind donations and volunteer service. We provide reports to funders using data collected from evaluations such as this one in order to demonstrate how our services are helping people affected by cancer. Your individual responses are anonymous and will remain confidential.

AND PLEASE, IF YOU ARE A COUPLE, PLEASE EACH COMPLETE THE SURVEY
