The Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation (SWCRF) celebrated its 21st anniversary on November 15 with a charity dinner and auction titled "Collaborating for a Cure," with an exclusive musical presentation by Dawes. The annual gala raised US $2.5 million to support SWCRF research programs that seek to eradicate cancer through collaborative projects. The Collaborating for a Cure gala was very well received despite a snowstorm and 14 other fundraising events going on in New York City. Among the attendees are Marion Waxman, Dr. Samuel Waxman, Elin Nierenberg, Michael Nierenberg Chris Wragge, William T. Sullivan, Dawes, Robin Lathrop, Richard Volpe, Christian Volpe, Alison Volpe, Dena K. Weiner, Howard Kurz, James E Frankel, Jody Gorin, Allie Gorin, Karen Amster-Young, Benjamin Young, Lewis A. Rubin, Joe Steffa, Sara Waxman, Bettina Waxman, Spencer Waxman, Scott Waxman, Joe Ades, Ten Travis, Hugh Hildesley, Julie Waxman, Lucy Salas, Elissa Held, Jamie Koff, Alyssa Greenberg, Samantha Santiago, Stokes Nielson, Ryan Bier and Corbette Jackson. After a lively cocktail-style reception and a silent auction, the host of the gala, Michael Nierenberg, welcomed the Foundation's Board of Directors, the organizers and other guests. Then the SWCRF CEO, Samuel Waxman, presented recent advancements found in regards to curing liver cancer, breast cancer, leukemia, pediatric cancer and lung cancer, and announced new partnerships with the National Cancer Institute and the National Institute on Aging. Later, SWCRF executive director William T. Sullivan explained how text messages could be sent with donations so that they would appear in real time on one of the screens in the reception room. The first donation published was a gift of US $ 5,000 "in tribute to Michael Nierenberg" by Thomas Shea. The Collaborating for a Cure Gala is one of the most important fundraising events in New York. This year, Dawes, the rock band presented their show An Evening With DAWES: Passwords Tour as part of the programming of their North American tour. In the past, bands like The Avett Brothers, Ziggy Marley, Train, Peter Frampton, Gregg Allman, Kid Rock, Steely Dan, Glenn Frey, Joe Walsh, Sheryl Crow, John Fogerty, Roger Daltrey and Counting Crows have participated in this gala. Since 1976, this gala, affectionately known as The Waxman, has raised millions of dollars for the search of a cure for cancer. So far, the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation has donated approximately $ 90 million to more than 200 researchers.
