Joan’s Legacy: Uniting Against Lung Cancer’s Strolling Supper Announces More Than $1.4M Raised for Lung Cancer Research

***

Brian Williams-Led Gala Celebrates 12 Years of Success

During Lung Cancer Awareness Month

 

(New York, NY – November 18, 2014) – Joan’s Legacy: Uniting Against Lung Cancer (UALC) marked its 12th year of funding innovative lung cancer research by raising more than $1.4 million at its signature gala event, the “Strolling Supper with Blues and News.” On Wednesday, November 12th, 750 guests gathered at Gotham Hall in Manhattan to support the efforts of the partners and doctors who have tirelessly raised awareness and pursued a cure for the nation’s deadliest cancer.

The Strolling Supper is the largest event marking Lung Cancer Awareness month in New York, highlighting the need for research, funding, and awareness to combat the nation’s number one cancer killer. Lung cancer is severely underfunded, lagging behind all other cancers. Over the past twelve years, the Strolling Supper has helped Uniting Against Lung Cancer fund $12 million in research grants at 47 different institutions across the United States.  

“The Joan’s Legacy: Uniting Against Lung Cancer Strolling Supper only continues to grow each year. We were thrilled to see so many new and familiar faces, and know that each and every attendee is doing their part to assist the fight against this terrible disease,” said Mary Ann Tighe, CEO of CBRE’s Tri-State Region and the president of the UALC board. “We are pleased to celebrate our 12th annual event and we continue to hope that someday soon we will share the joy of finding a cure with our dedicated partners.”

Throughout the evening, guests enjoyed a silent auction packed with luxury items and once-in-a-lifetime experiences, a rousing performance by Grammy award winning blues artist Delbert McClinton, and savory food and cocktails.

NBC’s Brian Williams, a long-time supporter of the Joan’s Legacy: Strolling Supper returned as the event’s host and honorary chairman, and remembered his late friend and colleague, Joan Scarangello, a talented news writer in whose memory the foundation was established. Joan, a never smoker, lost her battle with lung cancer at the age of 47 in 2001. Williams urged the crowd to donate to Research by the Hour, a program which allows attendees to sponsor an hour of lung cancer research. Additionally, WABC-TV News Anchor Bill Ritter returned this year as the gala’s emcee. He honored his mother, whom he lost to lung cancer, and emphasized that the work made possible by UALC has helped to extend the lives of those living with lung cancer.

“We would like to express sincere thanks to all of those who made this year’s Strolling Supper a true success,” said Roxanne Donovan, event co-chair and UALC board member. We are grateful to our partners and medical advisors for their continued support, tireless efforts and dedication to Uniting Against Lung Cancer. We look forward to achieving even greater milestones in the years to come.”

Uniting Against Lung Cancer, a 501(c)(3) organization headquartered in New York was founded in 2001 in memory of Joan Scarangello, a never-smoker who lost her battle with lung cancer at age 47. Uniting Against Lung Cancer is dedicated to finding a cure for lung cancer by providing funding for innovative research, and raising awareness of the nation’s deadliest cancer.
