Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation for Cancer Research’s Young Professionals Committee (YPC) came together on June 14th to host their Midsummer Angel Gala in support of our mission! 

The event raised more than $174,000 and is on track to meet the goal of $250,000 once their Charitybuzz auction and Lorraine Schwartz raffle close in the next few weeks.

This year’s Midsummer Angel Gala took place at The Ned NoMad thanks to Richie Akiva and Honored Supermodel Ubah Hassan, who has a strong connection to the mission of Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation after losing her mother to leukemia. Ubah told OK! Magazine,  “They have been relentless,” the model explains of the work of President and CoFounder Denise Rich and the foundation. “They know how to bring people together to have fun, but yet not forget that the fight is not over. We cannot just close our eyes. We cannot sleep on the cause.”

The Gala was sponsored by The Lothenbach Family Foundation, RBC and Advanced eClinical.  

Wine & Spirits and other in-kind sponsors included:  Whispering Angel, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Tequila Tepozan, Tres Chicon, Kansas Whisky, Free Spirits, Boxed Water, Misguided Spirits, Armand de Brignac, IKRAA Caviar, Sprinkles Cupcakes, Aubi & Ramsa, Baked by Melissa and Jose Andres – Mercado Little Spain, Glasshouse Fragrances, Rella Properties and artist Fer da Silva! 

Rose Morning, Muscari Flowers & Events and Elegant Affairs donated the beautiful florals that were used in our step and repeat, VIP tables and our event entrance! 

More than 250 guests danced all night to DJ’s Timo Weiland, The Whooligan, Han Jiang and Jason Taylor and live band Rare Vintage!  

Guests were thrilled upon leaving the event to receive a good bag filled with top brands including: Grande Cosmetics, Peter Thomas Roth, Valmont Spa, Glasshouse Fragrances, Milani Cosmetics, Grace My Grace, Covergirl, Philosophy, Sally Hansen, Ph7, Mattr Cosmetics and YSL Beauty!
