NEW YORK, NY - The stars came out for the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation’s 18th Annual A Magical Evening gala event on Monday, November 10th at the Marriott Marquis in New York City. This year’s star-studded charity event honored longtime Foundation supporter and Broadway veteran James L. Nederlander with the Visionary Leadership Award presented by event chair, friend and board member Francine LeFrak. Also honored during the evening’s program was renowned contemporary artist Chuck Close with the Christopher Reeve Spirit of Courage Award by Alexandra Reeve Givens and the New York Rangers organization legends Mike Richter and Brian Leetch were presented with the Dana Reeve HOPE Award by big fans Matthew and Will Reeve.
Academy Award winning actress Meryl Streep kicked off the evening with a champagne toast, followed by a moving speech from another famed actress and dedicated Reeve Foundation supporter Glenn Close.  The highlight of the evening was Foundation Chairman Peter Kiernan’s recognition of 1st Lieutenant Reinaldo Gonzalez, 25, who during a training exercise at US Army Ranger School fell 35 feet and sustained a C4 spinal cord injury, resulting in complete paralysis of his legs. However, with the help of the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation’s Military Outreach Program, Lt. Gonzalez was rehabilitated through one of their NeuroRecovery Network (NRN) centers and because of their combined efforts is able to walk again. Lt. Gonzalez took the stage to thank the Foundation and announce that since leaving the Foundation’s NRN center he has gone on to graduate Army Ranger School and now is hoping to fulfill his lifelong dream of serving his country as an army ranger.
Over 700 guests dressed in their best evening attire danced to the music by the famed Starlight Orchestra and were treated to a special performance from the upcoming Broadway musical - Irving Berlin’s White Christmas - before it begins previews at the Marquis Theatre on Friday, November 14th. Performing a medley of Irving Berlin songs from the new musical including “Love in the Weather,” “How Deep Is The Ocean?” and “White Christmas” were Tony Award Nominee Stephen Bogardus (Love! Valour! Compassion!) and Broadway favorite Kerry O'Malley (Into the Woods).
The evening closed with a live performance by the Grace Tabernacle Christian Center Church Concert Choir in honor of their beloved Brooklyn pastor Reverend Timothy Wright, who was able to attend the gala and is currently being rehabilitated at one of the Foundation’s partner medical centers The Kessler Institute in New Jersey.
The evening’s co-chairs Francine LeFrak & Rick Friedberg, Eaddo & Peter Kiernan, and Paul & Barbara Daversa were joined by notable guests including the cast of Lipstick Jungle: Lindsay Price, Kim Raver, and Robert Buckley, Gossip Girl’s Jessica Szohr, Molly Simms, Beth Ostrovsky Stern, Mary Alice Stephenson, designer Gilles Mendel, magician David Blaine, supermodel Kim Alexis and her husband Ron Duguay, Buzz Aldrin, Kathleen Turner, Francis Fisher, Marty Richards, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, Francesco Clark, Maggie Rizer, Miss Teen USA Stevi Perry, and Rita Cosby, among others were on hand to support this incredible Foundation in raising $2.5 million, which will be used to accomplish their mission of curing spinal cord injury by funding innovative research, and improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis through grants, information and advocacy.
