In collaboration with Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation for Cancer Research, the pair threw the musically-inspired event for cancer survivors and their families, along with supporters of the generous organization.
After celebrating together at a The Palm in Times Square, the attendees enjoyed a VIP experience at the smash Broadway hit, “School of Rock: THE MUSICAL.”
Rich shared her excitement for the event by sharing a photo from her organization on Twitter, urging fans to get involved and support MSK’s music therapy program.
Additional guests included Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation Founding Board Member Michele Rella, Jill and Bobby Zarin, Lauren Roberts, Paul Schindler, and Louise Camuto. After the show, the guests enjoyed a post-show talkback with the stars of “School of Rock,” including actress Mamie Parris. All proceeds from the evening benefitted Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation’s work to support the “nation’s best and brightest scientific investigators whose research focuses on finding less toxic treatments for patients with leukemia, lymphoma and related cancers,” per a press release.
Founded in 1996, the foundation’s goal is to “encourage the development of more effective therapies for patients with leukemia, lymphoma and related cancers. The Foundation funds innovative clinical or basic science research that will lead to novel therapeutic approaches that could replace, or be used in combination with existing effective therapies. Such therapeutic approaches could include alternative or complementary medicine.”
