Thank you to everyone who supported and attended our 21st Anniversary Benefit Gala! With your help, we raised over $1.2 million for our program.

Congratulations once again to our distinguished honorees, Jerome B. Zeldis, MD, PhD, Ivan Cheung and Robert J. Easton for their outstanding commitment to the cancer community.

Special thanks to Bill Ritter for hosting once again, Sebastian Clarke for expertly leading our auction, and our member speakers Lilliana Aponte Yap, who spoke fondly of her experience at Gilda’s Club, and her 9 year-old daughter Catalina, who fearlessly recited a beautiful poem she had written about her father.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, staff and members, thank you for being part of such a wonderful night for Gilda’s Club NYC. We look forward to seeing you next year!
