30 Rock star Alec Baldwin will host the Children’s Tumor Foundation’s Annual New York City Benefit Dinner on November 10 at the Pierre Hotel. This is the 22nd year the event is being held, previous hosts, honorees and performers include Sting, John and Margo Catsimatidis, New York City Chancellor of Schools Joel Klein, National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins, and famed journalist Marshall Loeb, among others.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to host an event for such a worthy cause,” said Baldwin, the Emmy award winner and Oscar nominee. “To be able to lend my time to better the lives of children is extremely gratifying.”

The annual benefit has raised millions of dollars to fund the vital scientific research.  This year’s event will feature a live and silent auction with sports memorabilia, vacation packages, jewelry and music memorabilia.  The evening will also feature a special guest musical performance.

“We couldn’t be more excited to have Alec host this year’s event,” said Children’s Tumor Foundation President John Risner. “His wit and charm will bring a particularly exciting element to the evening as we work to raise funds and awareness for those living with neurofibromatosis.”

The Children’s Tumor Foundation is the largest non-government funding source of neurofibromatosis (NF) research in the world.  NF is a progressive disorder that causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body.  NF affects more than one in every 3,000 children born, more than cystic fibrosis, Duchenne muscular dystrophy and Huntington’s disease combined. Research the Foundation funds is shedding new light on cancer, brain tumors, learning disabilities and bone abnormalities.
