AN EVENING CELEBRATING
BERRY GORDY and THE MOTOWN SOUND
The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) Fall Gala is the largest and most prominent fundraising event in Connecticut’s Fairfield County. This premier fundraising event is attended by more than 1,300 people, including many celebrities and the nation’s most prominent business executives and high-impact philanthropists.

The 2013 MMRF Fall Gala was held on November 9, at the Hyatt Regency Greenwich in Old Greenwich, Connecticut. The MMRF honored Motown founder Berry Gordy at the gala with the MMRF Spirit of Hope Award, presented annually to individuals who inspire hope with their perseverance in overcoming personal obstacles. Receiving the MMRF Courage and Commitment Award, Charles Goldstuck is the President and Chief Executive Officer of TouchTunes Interactive Networks. Motown’s Grammy Award-winning recording artist NE-YO was the featured artist and performed a tribute concert celebrating Berry Gordy along with additional surprise performers.

The event also featured an extraordinary silent and live auction. The silent auction was open for bidding via an online auction website. You did not need to attend the event to participate in the online auction. Auction items include: a VIP package to a Lady Gaga concert, a luxury vacation in Costa Rica, backstage passes to a John Mayer concert, a stunning Matisse print, a harmonica played by Stevie Wonder, a guitar autographed by Bon Jovi, and more.

Guests contributed to the #MMRFgala conversation on social media by posting photos and sharing event highlights!
