Solving Kids' Cancer 2nd Annual Spring Celebration

Solving Kids’ Cancer founders John London & Scott Kennedy along with Donna Karan hosted last night’s benefit.

Co-hosts Debra Ashkenazy, Gabby Karan DeFelice, Lyss Stern, Yvonne Force Villareal & Bonnie Young along with committee members Alina Cho, Carolina Herrera, Nanette Lepore, Alexandra Lind Rose & Amy Sacco were joined by guests Chelsea Clinton, Donna D’Cruz, John Demsey, Veronique Gabai-Pinsky and Tom Silverman.

For their acceptance speech the evening’s honoraries, Big Apple Circus Founders Paul Binder & Michael Christensen read off 100 doctor’s clown names, firing rapidly in their clown way, to entertain the crowd. Guests were then treated to a very moving & powerful performance of “Seasons of Love “& “Whatever “by the award winning Young People’s Chorus of New York City, whose members are children ages 7-14.

After delivering a heartfelt speech, host Donna Karan introduced actor, author and women's health advocate Karen Duffy, philanthropist & nightclub impresario Amy Sacco and comedian, actor Seth Herzog, of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon who served as co-auctioneers for the live auction which featured the opportunity to sponsor a clinical trial. With the SKC board promising to match the money raised dollar for dollar in order to launch the trial, the trio rallied guests.
