Black Tie International:
The Fourth Annual Cristian Rivera Foundation Fundraiser Gala


The fourth annual Cristian Rivera Foundation Fundraiser Gala

Local Charity Aims to Cure Deadly Pediatric
Cancer With Star-Studded Fundraiser Gala

For the fourth year in a row, New York City-based not-for-profit 501(c)(3) The Cristian Rivera Foundation is gathering celebrities, supporters and donors to raise money toward a groundbreaking clinical trial aimed at curing Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG).

The fourth annual Cristian Rivera Foundation
Fundraiser Gala will be held at Copacabana Supper Club and Event Space in Midtown Manhattan on Thursday, September 13, 2012, the date that would have marked foundation namesake Cristian Rivera’s tenth birthday had he not succumbed to DIPG in January 2009. Rivera was only 4 years old when he was diagnosed with the rare pediatric brain stem tumor, which generally affects children between the ages of 1 and 9. Approximately 200 children are diagnosed
with DIPG each year in the United States and most only survive for three to 18 months after diagnosis.

Through auction items, ticket sales and more, the fourth annual Cristian Rivera Foundation Fundraiser Gala will raise money in support of a promising FDA-approved clinical trial at Memorial Sloan
Kettering and Weill Cornell Medical Center that officially got underway on May 1, 2012, thanks to the more than $200,000 in donations from the Cristian Rivera Foundation to date. Spearheaded by Dr. Mark Souweidane, the Director of the Weill Cornell Pediatric Brain and Spine Center, this groundbreaking trial is the first of its kind to use convection-enhanced delivery to administer radio
immunotherapy to children with an otherwise incurable tumor. Dr. Souweidane has miraculously found a way to operate on a tumor that had, until now, been deemed inoperable and so far, he has operated on two young patients, both of whom
continue to exceed expectations as they recover from surgery. The Cristian Rivera Foundation is proud to support Dr. Souweidane’s important and historic research.

The fourth annual Cristian Rivera Foundation
Fundraiser Gala will be hosted by Cristian Rivera Foundation Committee Members Kenan Thompson, star of Saturday Night Live, and Darlene Rodriguez, co-anchor of NBC’s award-winning 
Today in New York.

The event kicks off at 6pm with red carpet arrivals from esteemed committee members. Tickets start at $100 and include passed hors d'oeuvres, four hours of open bar, and dinner provided by Celebrity Chefs Alex Garcia and Ricardo Cardona, both committee members of the Cristian Rivera Foundation.

There will also be live and silent auctions offering one-of-a-kind items and experiences.

The fourth annual Cristian Rivera Foundation Fundraiser Gala will begin at 6pm and end at 10pm on Thursday, September 13.

The Copacabana Supper Club and Event Space is located at 268 West 47th Street, on the corner of Eighth Avenue in Manhattan’s Times Square.

Tickets to the fourth annual Cristian Rivera Foundation Fundraiser Gala are available now by visiting .
