The Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund hosted its first Awards Gala November 1 in Los Angeles. The event aimed to raise funds for its commitment to cancer prevention, research and education.

Founded in memory of Ronnie James Dio, singer and front man of Dio, Rainbow, Black Sabbath and Heaven & Hell who died of gastric cancer last year, the Fund is a privately funded 501C3 charity that  has raised more than $500,000. For more, visit diocancerfund.org.
