Signature Fundraiser Brings in Nearly $3.8M!

22 October 2012

On Monday, October 22 at Cipriani Wall Street, Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation’s Angel Ball gala raised $3,742,311 million for cancer research!  The stars were out in full force for this year’s event with performances by Smokey Robinson, Natalie Cole, a surprise appearance by Nelly with celebrity participants including Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Ashanti, Russell Simmons, Joan Collins, Tiki Barber, George Hamilton, Bar Rafaeli, and Entertainment Tonight’s Christina McLarty to name only a few.  Celebrity jeweler and foundation Board Member, Lorraine Schwartz, once again served as Gala Sponsor and New York Times columnist Suleika Jaouad brought the crowd to their feet with her incredible story of survivorship.  A subsequent paddle raise in support of music therapy programs had donors donating $564,000 on the spot.
