About Gilda's Club Louisville

Gilda’s Club Louisville, named in memory of Saturday Night Live’s Gilda Radner, is a place where people living with cancer – and those who love them – find strength and comfort from members sharing their experiences and wisdom with each other.   Anyone touched by cancer – any type of cancer – newly diagnosed or survivor, adults, children, their families and friends, are welcome.

Gilda’s Club Louisville offers 100+ free events each month – support and networking groups, education, exercise, cooking and nutrition, art and social events such as book clubs, gardening, movie and game nights, seasonal parties and potlucks, and so much more.

The Fleur De Lis Regatta enables you and others to join the many sailors who have teamed up to support the mission of Gilda’s Club Louisville: to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action and sustained by community.
