    CONCEPT:

    The Cristian Rivera Foundation (a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization) was created to stimulate community awareness, drive support, and raise revenue to fund the Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (D.I.P.G) clinical trials at Weill-Cornell Medical Center. The revolutionary trials are being led by the worlds top Pediatric Neurological Surgeon, Dr. Mark Souweidane and his dedicated team. Iconic Event Promoter and Public Relations Marketing Firm owner, John “Gungie” Rivera, created the Cristian Rivera Foundation in July 2009; Six months after his six-year-old son Cristian lost his two-year battle with the rare brain stem tumor.  D.I.P.G. generally affects children between the ages of 1 year and 9 years old, with the average lifespan of a child, after diagnosis, falling between three and 18 months. Only 200-300 cases are discovered in the United States each year and there is currently no cure. D.I.P.G. is also the least funded form of Cancer in the United States in terms of research and treatment.

    The Ninth Annual Cristian Rivera Foundation Celebrity Gala will be held on Wednesday November 15, 2017 at Capitale. This fundraiser’s goal is to raise money through the sale of tickets that will include a fully-catered dinner, passed hors d'oeuvres, open bar, entertainment, awards presentations and more. The event will also feature live and silent auctions offering valuable items and experiences, such as a dinner catered by Celebrity Chef Alex Garcia. Proceeds raised from the Ninth Annual Gala will go toward the pioneering research of Dr. Mark Souweidane of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Weill Cornell Medical College, whose groundbreaking clinical trial officially began in 2012. To date, the Cristian Rivera Foundation has raised more than eight hundred and fifty thousand dollars ($850,000.00) in support of Dr. Souweidane’s unprecedented research, the research being conducted at the Northwestern University lab of Dr. Oren Becher and support to children and families.
     
    In past years, the event has drawn support from well-known figures such as former Bronx Borough Presidents Fernando Ferrer and Adolfo Carrión, Jr, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr, actor Luis Guzman, actress and founder of the Puerto Rican Traveling Theatre Miriam Colon, Kenan Thompson of the TV show Saturday Night Live, Co-Anchor of NBC’s “Today in New York” Darlene Rodriguez, Dina Manzo and actress Jacqueline Laurita of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Luis Ortiz Star of Bravo’s hit reality Tv Show “Million Dollar Listing of New York”, “Little Miss Sunshine” Star Abigail Breslin, E-News’ AJ Calloway, New York Jets Geno Smith,  actor Renoly Santiago, actor/director/entrepreneur Malik Yoba, and New York Knicks All-Stars Anthony Mason and John Starks, among others.

    As we enter the second phase of the clinical trial, we rely on generous supporters like you to assist us in treating, and eventually curing, D.I.P.G.  Our Ninth Annual Cristian Rivera Foundation Celebrity Gala is just another vehicle to bring us all together to accomplish one goal - Giving our children an opportunity to fulfill their dreams by curing D.I.P.G.

    Deadline for Sponsorship and Ad Sales must be in before Mon, Oct 30th, 2017.
