Annual Fall Gala
October 28, 2017
Nineteen-Time Grammy Award-Winning Performer Tony Bennett, along with Tony Award-Winning star of theater, film and television James Naughton, joined the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) at its Annual Fall Gala Saturday, October 28, 2017 in Greenwich, Connecticut.
Republic Records Founders and Chief Officers Avery and Monte Lipman were honored with the MMRF Spirit of Hope Award, and Principal Trumpeter of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, Ryan Anthony, served as the evening’s Patient Speaker and was honored with the MMRF Courage and Commitment Award. Both of these awards are presented to people in recognition of their extraordinary contributions and inspiration of hope through their life’s work and their dedication to the MMRF and its mission.
The event included cocktails, dinner, a live auction and musical performance. Nearly 800 supporters including patients, family members, healthcare leaders and business executives attended this year’s event, who all share a mission to find a cure.
The MMRF is grateful for our presenting sponsor and pharmaceutical partner, Takeda Oncology. With all of the progress we continue to make, there has never been a better time to support the MMRF.
