The Fourteenth Annual Food Allergy Ball, presented by the Food Allergy Initiative (FAI), took place on Monday, December 5, 2011 at The Waldorf=Astoria. The evening was attended by approximately 500 supporters and raised more than $4.5 million, which will benefit FAI’s research, education, and public policy programs, aimed at finding a cure and raising awareness of
 life-threatening food allergies.

This year’s event honored Douglas L. Braunstein,
Chief Financial Officer, JPMorgan Chase & Co. Renowned chef Alfred Portale (Gotham Bar and Grill) received the
FAI Lifetime Achievement Award.

Julia Koch, Sharyn Mann and Todd Slotkin were the Gala Dinner Chairs. David H. Koch was the Corporate Dinner Chair. Liana Silverstein Backal and Arthur Backal, Abbey and Steven Braverman, Patricia and James Cayne, Nina Rennert Davidson and Mitchell Davidson, Mary Richardson Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Roxanne and Dean Palin, and Stephanie Winston Wolkoff and David Wolkoff were the Benefit Dinner Chairs. The evening featured a special performance by Audra McDonald and Norm Lewis, stars of Broadway’s The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess. The festivities for this black-tie Gala began at 7:00 PM.

The Food Allergy Initiative (FAI) is a national, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to finding a cure for food allergies, which affect up to 15 million Americans, including 1 in 13 children—two in every classroom. Founded in 1998, FAI is the world’s largest private source of funding for food allergy research. Since its inception, the organization has committed more than $75 million toward research, clinical activities to improve diagnosis and treatment, public policy initiatives to increase federal funding for research and create safer environments, and educational programs to heighten understanding and raise awareness.
