This is the promo that my hometown newspaper ran for Stand Up to Cancer.

No where does it mention how important this fund raiser is; that it raises money for research that benefits all of us.  To me it reads flippant, comparing SU2C to the Jerry Lewis telethon (an equally important fund raiser, IMHO).  Very little offends me, but this did.  I hope the writer’s life is never touched by cancer, but it might give him a different perspective.
