Last month, we held our 13th Annual Celebrity Gala with 500 people in attendance, including many notable guests such as CRF Board Member and SNL cast mate Kenan Thompson, actor and entrepreneur Malik Yoba, and boxing champion Edgar Berlanga. Also in attendance was academy award nominee Chazz Palminteri, CRF Board of Director and NBC Today in New York anchor, Darelene Rodriguez, and television host AJ Calloway. From the generous funds raised from the gala, and throughout the year this year we have donated about $500,000 (1/2 Million Dollars) to DIPG research, clinical trials, and family support! We are all so thankful for everyone who attended or supported the gala and made this unforgettable event happen.

This past Giving Tuesday our Board of Director Darlene Rodriguez gifted Dr. Mark M. Souweidane, our medical partner, with a check of over a 3rd of a million dollars ($350,000) to fund DIPG research. This year CRF has been able to donate more than we ever have to our medical partners conducting DIPG research. While continuing to fight DIPG, we are incredibly grateful for all the unwavering support that we have received and we are confident that one day we will accomplish our goal of finding a cure for this vicious cancer.
