Celebrating 16 Years of Cancer Support at Gilda’s Club NYC

 

 

Gilda's Club New York City (GCNYC) will honor
 Dr. David Schenkein, Dr. James Allison, and ID Media
on Thursday, November 17, 2011 at their 16th
Anniversary Benefit Gala.  This exciting affair will be held at
 the renowned Pierre Hotel.

The evening will begin with a cocktail hour and silent auction,
 followed by a formal dinner, award ceremony and live auction.  Donations made will enable GCNYC to raise awareness and
help fulfill its mission to provide social and emotional support for everyone living with cancer in New York City, including
their families and friends – FREE of charge.

 

GCNYC is proud to honor two visionaries at this year’s event,
whose work has helped individuals diagnosed with cancer,
 David Schenkein, MD, Chief Executive Officer, Agios
Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and James Allison, PhD, Chairman,
 Immunology Program,
Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

 

efforts of these individuals have helped shape the course
of medicine for thousands of patients living with cancer
 and their families.
Dr. Schenkein joined Agios in 2009 as
the CEO and has been a hematologist and medical oncologist
for more than 20 years. He has published more than
75 peer-reviewed articles.  Under his leadership as the former
head of oncology drug development at Millennium and
 Genentech, multiple novel and important oncology medicines
 have come to market.  Agios is passionately committed to the fundamental transformation of cancer patients’ lives through
 scientific leadership in the field of cancer metabolism.
 

 

Dr. Allison is a leader in the field of immunology, particularly in developing ways to help the immune system recognize
and destroy cancer cells. His research is focused on the
 mechanisms that regulate the immunological response of
 T lymphocytes.  He found a molecule, CTLA-4 that plays a
critical role in turning off T cells.  He went on to show that
antibodies to CTLA-4 could induce rejection of tumors in
 preclinical animal models.   Allison was involved in the
generation of antibodies to human CTLA-4 which have been
 extensively tested in clinical trials in a variety of human cancers. 
It was recently shown to significantly increase survival in
 late stage melanoma patients, with about 25% surviving 4+ years. 
This antibody, Ipilimumab, was the first drug ever to show
survival benefit in late stage melanoma. 
It was recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration
for the treatment of melanoma. 

 

In addition, a special presentation of
“The
Bill Modell Heart of Gold Award” will be made to ID Media
for their outstanding volunteer efforts within our community.

 

GCNYC is proud to have ABC’s Diana Williams host the event
for her seventh year in a row. “We are honored to have Diana’s continued support as part of this important event, and to
help us share our story,” said Lily Safani, CEO of GCNYC.
A new addition to the evening is our auctioneer,
 C. Hugh Hildesley, from Sotheby’s.

 

About Gilda’s Club New York City:

 of free support for everyone living with cancer - men, women,
 teens and children - along with their families and friends. Our innovative program is an essential complement to medical care, providing networking and support groups, workshops,
 lectures and social activities, all free of charge.
  We provide our program in beautiful, non-residential homelike settings:
