A Night to Shine

By November 11, 2010December 5th, 2023Awareness, Ways to Give

Last night’s Annual New York City Benefit Dinner raised over $1 million.  This is the largest event in the 32-year history of the Foundation and speaks strongly to the advances we are making and the successes we have had.

Alec Baldwin was truly the Master of Ceremonies as the evening’s host and we are so grateful for his support of the cause.  From assuming auctioneering responsibilities to chiding our Chairman (and his boss!), Alec commanded the room and helped us raise funds that will improve NF care.

A big thank you and congratulations to our evening’s corporate honoree Alexandria Real Estate Equities, our medical honoree Dr. Mark Phillips, and our NF Ambassador Rose Match Suna.  All have contributed significantly to improving the lives of those affected by NF and we are a better Foundation because of their commitment to our cause.

Also a big thank to all who were in attendance, your support of the Foundation fuels our mission and furthers our resolve.  We hope you had a wonderful evening.

The money raised last night will help fund clinical trials and preclinical testing to advance future clinical trials.  It will help support our NF clinic network which improves care for individuals with NF.  And it will help ensure our annual NF Conference continues to bring together the best and brightest minds in research.

The theme of last night was “A Night to Shine” and I am confident that the light from last night will help guide us toward treatments for NF.
