Boxing Legend, Author and MMRF Honorary Board Member Sugar Ray Leonard quieted the room at the 20th annual Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) 2016 Annual Fall Gala on Saturday, October 29 at the Hyatt Regency in Old Greenwich, CT. Smokey Robinson, Grammy Award-Winning Singer, Songwriter and Record Producer, was recognized as the MMRF Courage and Commitment Award Honoree for his countless achievements as well as the hope he has inspired through his work. His music was celebrated in a tribute concert, headlined by Grammy Award-Winning Singer and Songwriter CeeLo Green, who performed Motown classics – as well as his hit song “Forget You” as a surprise encore.

Greenwich residents and longtime MMRF supporters, Anne and David Ogilvy, received the MMRF’s Spirit of Hope Award for their resilience, dedication and perseverance in the fight against multiple myeloma.
