Cancer Research Institute Young Philanthropists 4th Annual Midsummer Social

Cancer Research Institute Young Philanthropists 4th Annual Midsummer Social

On June 9, 2011, the Cancer Research Institute Young Philanthropists held their fouth annual Midsummer Social.

More than 230 guests joined the YPs at Kiss & Fly nightclub in Manhattan's Meatpacking District. VIP tables, open bar, and a great party vibe thanks to the nonstop music of DJ Bryant Jones, which had our guests dancing into the night.

A special prize contest featured sporting and restaurant tickets, cosmetic gift packages, hotel stays, and fashion accessories.

The Midsummer Social netted more than $14,000, which will go toward the CRI Young Philanthropists Postdoctoral Fellowship Award. This award provides $145,500 over three years to a highly talented young scientist working to advance knowledge of the immune system and its application to solving the cancer problem.

Special thanks to event sponsors ClarkDodge Asset Management and Vitech Systems Group, Inc., and to prize donors: Astor Wine Center, Bumble and Bumble, Caesars Atlantic City, Emporio Restaurant, Kittichai Restaurant, Lauren Rae Levy, Roy Michaels Salon, TAVAT, TRYP Hotel, and Yo-Yoga.

The CRI Young Philanthropists will host their next event, Fall Into Fashion, later this year. To receive updates about this event, please email Anita Schmidt at aschmidt@cancerresearch.org.
