SAMUEL WAXMAN CANCER RESEARCH FOUNDATION (SWCRF) 17th ANNUAL "COLLABORATING FOR A CURE" BENEFIT DINNER AND AUCTION HONORS FASHION DESIGNERS CUSHNIE ET OCHS AND RAISES $2.5 MILLION TO SUPPORT CANCER RESEARCH

 

New York, NY (December 5, 2014)  -  Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation (SWCRF) hosted its "Collaborating for a Cure" Benefit Dinner and Auction, honoring fashion designers Cushnie et Ochs, and featuring a special musical performance by six-time Grammy award winner Ziggy Marley, on Thursday, December 4, 2014 at Cipriani Wall Street. The annual event, now in its seventeenth year, raised $2.5 million to support the Waxman Foundation?s research efforts to produce a cure for cancer.

 

Notable guest attendees included Dr. Samuel Waxman (Founder and CEO of Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation), Michael and Elin Nierenberg (17th Annual Collaborating for a Cure Hosts), Chris Wragge (Co-Anchor of CBS 2 News This Morning), Carly Cushnie (Honoree; Fashion Designer and Co-founder of Cushnie et Ochs), Michelle Ochs (Honoree; Fashion Designer and Co-founder of Cushnie et Ochs), Ziggy Marley (Special Musical Guest), Robert Kantor (President of SWCRF), Hugh Hildesley (Executive Vice President & Auctioneer of Sotheby's), Spencer Waxman (Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation Board of Directors), Mary Kantor (Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation Honorary Board Member), James Frankel (Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation Board of Directors), and Ruth Finley (Founder of Fashion Calendar).

  

The event was attended by more than 750 corporate executives, board members, and their guests. The money raised will support the Foundation's research efforts to produce a cure for cancer by reprogramming cancer cells and to deliver tailored, minimally toxic treatments to patients. The scientists funded by the SWCRF have made significant breakthroughs in cancer research, including identifying pathways to deliver novel therapies to treat cancer.

 

SWCRF Collaborating for a Cure host Michael Nierenberg gave his opening remarks, welcoming guests to the Dinner & Auction and thanking the SWCR's many supporters for their continued efforts to raise funds for cancer research.  The evening's Master of Ceremonies Chris Wragge then took the stage to introduce Dr. Samuel Waxman whose remarks highlighted the importance of investing in cancer research and developing less toxic therapies for cancer patients of all ages, particularly senior citizens who are unable to tolerate the intensity of chemotherapy. After dinner, Wragge welcomed honorees Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs to the stage. Carly Cushnie said she and Michelle were "thankful to support a cause close to so many hearts." She described the privilege they had of visiting Dr. Waxman?s laboratory at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and gaining a better understanding of his work, which she described as "mind-blowing."

 

Known affectionately by New Yorkers as "The Waxman," the yearly fête is considered to be among the top fundraising events in New York City. In recent years, "The Waxman" has raised several million dollars to support the Waxman Foundation's research efforts to produce a cure for cancer. Past celebrity supporters have included the Warren Hayes Band, Kid Rock, Chevy Chase, Steely Dan, Glenn Frey, Joe Walsh, Sheryl Crow, John Fogerty, and Counting Crows.

 

The Event Chairs were: Dale and Peter Claman, Lynn and Wes Edens, Katie and Scott Eichel, Kristen and Johan Eveland, Maria and Kenneth Fishel, Alyssa and Clifford Greenberg, Mary Henry and Howard Rubin, Gary Jacob, Diane and Adam Katz, Nancy and Howard Kurz, Randal Nardone, Elin and Michael Nierenberg, Nancy and Craig Overlander, Mara and Baron Silverstein, Linda Taub and Amy and Jeff Verschleiser.
