On August 6th the Cancer Research Institute (CRI)
Young Philanthropist sponsored a "Midsummer
Social" at the premiere West Village nightclub
Tenjune. The party raised $25,300 to support cancer
immunology research from pre-event ticket sales,
raffle tickets and door admissions.
The festivities included a rocking DJ, yummy cupcakes
and open bar as well as an amazing selection of
prizes for the raffle. Some items included a Diane
Von Furstenburg purse and towel, a tote by Coach
and a beautiful leather hobo bag by Marc Jacobs.
There were also sports packages, signed sports
memorabilia and gift certificates to fabulous
New York City restaurants.
Formed in 2008 the CRI Young Philanthropist is
a network of young professionals dedicated to
assisting the efforts of cancer research.
