NEW YORK, NY - The stars came out for the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation’s 19th Annual A Magical Evening gala event on Monday, November 9th  at the New York Marriott Marquis. This year’s star-studded charity event honored the 1.275 million Americans in the US living with a spinal cord injury – a number that represents the results of a recently published study sponsored by the Reeve Foundation, which shows that 5.6 million Americans are living with paralysis, 1.275 million of those as a result of spinal cord injury.

 

Award winning actor Richard Kind kicked off the evening with a champagne toast, followed by a moving speech from Christopher and Dana Reeve’s only son, Will Reeve The highlight of the evening was the unveiling of the Reeve Foundation’s Life Rolls On Trike-bike- the first wheelchair accessible custom chopper built by Orange County Choppers designed specifically for a paraplegic motorcycle rider. Head of Orange County Chopper and star of the hit TLC show American Chopper, Paul Teutul, Sr. presented the Foundation with this one-of-a-kind chopper which is completely controlled by hand mechanisms and has handlebars that extend back approximately 2.5 feet. There is an automatic ramp that comes down at the push of a button, the person then wheels up the ramp and locks in – and is ready to ride.

 

Over 600 guests dressed in their best evening attire
danced to the music by the famed Starlight Orchestra and were treated to a special performance from the platinum recording singer-songwriter Colbie Caillat
.

 

The evening’s celebration committee members
Francine LeFrak & Rick Friedberg, Eaddo & Peter Kiernan, Jack & Gail Hughes, Henry G. Stifel III, Paul & Barbara Daversa, and Francesco Clark were joined by special guests including: Meryl Streep, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jane Krakowski, Matthew Reeve, Will Reeve, Alexandra Reeve Givens, and Caroline Rhea.  The Mentalist’s Amanda Righetti, Anthony Edwards, Susan Sarandon, magician David Blaine, Victoria’s Secret model Selita Ebanks, style expert Mary Alice Stephenson, Miss USA Kristen Dalton, Miss Teen USA Stormi Henley, and Sandra Lee, among others were on hand to support this incredible Foundation in raising $1 million, which will be used to accomplish their mission of curing spinal cord injury by funding innovative research, and improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis through grants, information and advocacy.
