Fundraiser October 11th in Soho

A wonderful friend has organized a photography event, which will take place on Thursday, October 11 from 6:30-8:30 at 110 Greene Street in New York City. A group of 7 very talented, emerging photographers have generously donated their photographs. There will be light food and drink and an opportunity to view and purchase beautiful artwork. Children are welcome. All proceeds from the door and sales will benefit neuroblastoma research and development at Memorial Sloan-Kettering through the Children's Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation.

Funding for research and treatment of pediatric cancers is insufficient to meet the needs of children with neuroblastoma. The therapies these children endure are long and painful, and there are limited options to save their lives. However, there are promising therapies in the pipeline that could soon be manufactured for testing in clinical trials. Money raised at the photography fundraiser will be of direct help to Toby and many, many others in the near future.

We are immensely grateful to Luba Proger, Adi Lavy, Ignacio Ayestaran, Jason Guerrero, Leonid Khanin, Maria Aiolova, Tina Roth Eisenberg, Evans Real Estate, Evelina Ioselev, Patricia Tallungan, dishes, Nuvo, and all those who have contributed their time to make this event a reality.

Is there any way those of us not living in the area can participate?

I am also a stranger but did go on the orangefog website and it directs you to the org that the money is going to which is a nueroblastoma research grooup so you can donate directly to the org that the fundraiser is collecting for. Of course this is a rather unofficial answer but it makes sense that this would be the way to do it - I would love a confirm so that I too could donate.

hi everyone, thank you for your questions about donating from afar. we had not planned for an online photography auction, but i can see if it's a possibility. for those who would like to donate directly to CNCF (children's neuroblastoma cancer foundation), please make sure to designate your donation to "band of parents." band of parents is the name of the campaign that funnels funds specifically to memorial sloan-kettering research and development. thank you all for your continuing support and love.
xox,
