The 26th Annual Collaborating for a Cure Gala to benefit the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation was held on Thursday, November 16, at Cipriani Wall Street.

The annual fundraiser supports more than 60 scientists around the world funded by the Waxman Foundation. Additionally, dollars raised this year will help launch the Foundation’s newest initiative – the SWCRF Mission Possible Grants.

These highly competitive projects will be focused on improving healthy longevity with less risk of cancer as we age. SWCRF plans to add five to six mission possible grantees to its growing, international network in 2024.

“The only way to end cancer as we know it, is by working together,” said Dr. Samuel Waxman. “This has been the SWCRF philosophy since its founding nearly 50 years. It is why our scientists are required to work with other labs, sometimes across oceans, in order to collaborate and speed up the pace of scientific breakthroughs. And it is why events like this gala are so important.”

This year’s event honored artist and humanitarian, Ariela Wertheimer, Guido Campello, co-CEO at Journelle, and first CEO of luxury lingerie brand Cosabella and Dr. Sapna Palep, co-CEO at Journelle, Founder of Spring Street Dermatology, Mt. Sinai Clinical Professor, and CBS New York News Anchor, Chris Wragge.

Known for its history of top-notch live musical guests, this year’s gala was no exception with a special live performance by Tedeschi Trucks “Fireside Live.”
