Gilda’s Club Worldwide Raises
 Over $1.9 Million

 at Annual Gala

~Lance Armstrong Presents Mort Topfer with
Award for Philanthropic Gift~

 

 

Cancer support for the whole family, the whole time was the overarching theme at the fifth annual Gilda’s Club Worldwide Benefit Gala held Thursday, May 15 in New York City at Cipriani 42nd Street. Attended by 436 friends and supporters and special guest Lance Armstrong, the event raised more than $1.9 million dollars for the cancer support organization.

 Emceed by Elvis Duran from New York’s Z100, the black tie dinner honored Mort Topfer, a co-founder and managing director of Castletop Capital in Austin, Texas, and the Lexus Corporation for their generous donations to help raise awareness of the importance of cancer support for everyone touched by cancer.  In addition, Mr. Topfer was recognized specifically for his contributions to help extend the reach of the Gilda’s Club Worldwide network through the development of The Living Room, an exciting new online venture launching later this year. 

Giving a touching toast to his long-time friend, Lance Armstrong commented on Mr. Topfer’s commitment and contributions to health and human services, the arts, and educational initiatives.

The evening’s festivities featured performances by Rosie’s Broadway Kids and classical recording artist, Michael Amante, as well as a live auction conducted by Hugh Hildesley, Executive Vice President of Sotheby’s.  Auction packages included front row tickets and backstage passes the Z-100 Jingle Ball, a “South American Soiree” to Argentina, a trip to Napa Valley that included dinner at French Laundry and an instant wine cellar, a New York package with a private dress fitting by Carmen Marc Valvo, and a first-class trip to France that included tours of some of the most famous and exclusive vineyards in the world combined with a Christian Dior shopping spree. 

Additionally, proceeds from the “raise the paddle” portion of the evening were generously matched by founding Board Chair, Angelica Berrie.

 “Our Gala success is a fitting tribute to the Gilda’s Club mission by all of our trustees as well as the hundreds of other supporters who turned out to celebrate our successes, past, present, and future, as well as the memory of our inspiration, Gilda Radner,” said Gilda’s Club Worldwide CEO, Vivien Hoexter.

 About Gilda’s Clubs

Gilda’s Club Worldwide has clubhouses in 22 cities throughout North America and 9 more properties in development.  Free to all members, Gilda’s Clubs are warm, welcoming, home-like meeting places that provide a planned program of emotional and social support as a supplement to medical care.  The Gilda’s Club program is not only for the diagnosed but also for children whose parent or loved one has cancer, the entire extended family and caring friends. Together, as a community, members learn to LIVE with cancer whatever the outcome. To learn more about Gilda’s Club or to find a clubhouse,
