New York, NY - (November 2014) -   More 480 guests attended Gilda’s Club New York City’s 19th Anniversary Gala at the Pierre hotel on November 13, and helped to raise a record breaking $1.1 million for their free cancer support program.   WABC TV news anchor and ABC News 20/20 correspondent, Bill Ritter, hosted the event for the 3rd consecutive year and auctioneer C. Hugh Hildesley of Sotheby’s, once again entertained the guests with his lively auction rapport.  Miss USA, Nia Sanchez, assisted Mr. Hildesley by lending a hand to auction off a beautiful red Vespa during the live bidding.  Honorary Co-Chairs included: Joanna Bull, Mandy Patinkin, Emma Stone, Gene Wilder, and Alan and Robin Zweibel.  Gala Co-Chairs were Robert J. Easton and Mark J. Alles and Ann Russo served as Dinner Chair. 

Sandra E. Peterson and Laura Schumacher were honored with the Corporate Vision and Advances in Cancer Research Awards respectively.    EMCOR/Penguin’s CEO, Paul Shields, was presented with The Bill Modell Heart of Gold Award which is given to individuals or companies who have made an extraordinary impact on Gilda’s Club through their generosity of volunteerism, and commitment of time and services.

A teen member of Gilda’s Club NYC, Margaux Robin, shared her experience with coming to Gilda’s Club as a young girl while her mother was being treated for breast cancer.  She has since transitioned to the teen bereavement program when her mother passed and continues to be involved as a volunteer with the younger children at Gilda’s Club.


About Gilda’s Club NYC

Gilda's Club NYC (GCNYC) was founded in 1995 by Gene Wilder, psychotherapist Joanna Bull,  Mandy Patinkin, Joel Siegel, and other generous individuals,  in memory of Gilda Radner, the talented comedian and original cast member of Saturday Night Live who passed away in 1989 from ovarian cancer. During her illness, Gilda was part of a cancer support community which inspired her dream that anyone touched by cancer would be able to receive the kind of emotional and social support she found there. GCNYC's mission is to support, educate and empower cancer patients and their families - women, men, teens and children.  Our innovative program is an essential complement to medical care, providing support and networking groups, educational lectures and workshops, and social activities, all free of charge.
We believe no one should face cancer alone.
