A-T Ease Foundation 8th Annual Focus on the Hope Benefit

A-T Ease Foundation 8th Annual Focus on the Hope Benefit

The A-T Ease Foundation 8th Annual Focus on the Hope Benefit took place on Thursday, October 15th, 2009 at The Terrace Club in Midtown Manhattan.

Guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’ouvres while mingling and bidding on a silent auction that included items donated from Godiva Chocolatier, Small Luxury Hotels of the World, De Gustibus Cooking School, Vestry Wines, Safilo USA/Solstice Sunglass Boutique, Sunham Home Fashion, Royce Brook Golf Club and Kramer Portraits, among many others.

Speeches were made by special guest, Lonnie Quinn, Weatherman from CBS 2 News and Stephen Leo, a parent of two children with Ataxia-Telangiectasia (A-T). Lisa Rosen, Co-President, related some exciting news regarding a breakthrough in medical research, which has been supported by A-T Ease Foundation. Dr. Richard Gatti at the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at UCLA School of Medicine has identified several compounds that are viable for development into drugs for treatment of A-T patients. At the present time, there are no treatments and no cure for A-T.

The evening was a great success!
