WHAT: Hosted by songwriter Denise Rich and her daughters Daniella Rich Kilstock and Ilona Rich Schachter, the evening will honor the memory of Gabrielle Rich Aouad. We are in a new world and living a new way – but Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation for Cancer Research still needs to fund research the old way to help create the world that Gabrielle envisioned, where others would not suffer as she did. This event will fund the best and brightest early career scientists whose research focuses on finding less toxic treatments for patients with leukemia, lymphoma and other related blood cancers. Marc J. Leder serves as honorary chair for the evening.
Guests and supporters are invited to participate in a luxury online auction on CharityBuzz.com, which will launch on September 10th, to benefit Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation for Cancer Research. Throughout the evening guests will reminisce while viewing iconic images by legendary photographer, Dustin Pittman, who will also donate two prints from his Studio 54 archives to the auction. Every guest will receive a VIP party box to help bring the disco theme to life at home!
Presenting sponsors for the evening include: Marc J. Leder, Sun Capital Partners Foundation; Denise Rich; Danielle Rich Kilstock and Ilona Rich Schachter.
