2016 HALL OF FAME DINNER: CELEBRATING BRAVE SURVIVORS AND RESEARCH EXCELLENCE

CR&T is deeply grateful to the dedicated donors, volunteers and friends who made our 2016 Cancer Survivors Hall of Fame dinner a great success.

The 2016 Hall of Fame Dinner was held at The Essex House in New York City on Tuesday, November 15, 2016. More than 200 guests joined us for this special evening, which honors the courage and outstanding contributions of extraordinary individuals who have played a crucial role in the effort to find new treatments and cures for blood malignancies and other common cancers. Thanks to the generosity of our friends, the event raised nearly $400,000, which will enable CR&T to advance critical research initiatives. 

We presented our Lifetime Achievement Award to Nicholas J. Sarlis, MD, PhD, a distinguished cancer investigator and Chief Medical Officer at Sellas Life Sciences, and our Cancer Survivor Award to Dr. Jennifer Arnold, a neonatologist and co-star of TLC's popular docudrama, "The Little Couple."

Drs. Sarlis and Arnold joined the prominent physicians, scientists, researchers, humanitarians and philanthropists that CR&T has been proud to recognize since Hall of Fame event was launched in 1997. 

The dinner also featured our Annual Charity Raffle, which gives the winner the opportunity to choose from five fabulous vacations -- including a stay at the renowned Pebble Beach Resort -- and a Silent Auction.

All proceeds from the Hall of Fame Dinner benefit CR&T and its cutting-edge initiatives, including funding basic and clinical research at the Richard T. Silver, MD Myeloproliferative Neoplasms Center at Weill Cornell Medical College. 

Our 2017 Hall of Fame Dinner will be held at The Essex House on Tuesday, November 14.  Details and online registration will be available soon.  You may also contact Barbara Rosenstein, Director of Administration and Development, at 212-288-6604 or brosenstein@crt.org.
