#ForeverInspired - The 2017 Angel Ball
Gabrielle's Angel Foundation For Cancer Research Hosted Their Annual Fundraiser Angel Ball And It Was A Night To Remember!
We were thrilled to give you an all access BTS pass to the annual black-tie benefit as we went live from the gala, showcasing the largest event of the year in the fight against cancer. Held at NYC's breathtaking Cipriani Wall Street and with over 700 guests in attendance, the Angel Ball raised an incredible $3.8 million & counting for cancer research.
The inspiring night was hosted by Grammy-nominated songwriter Denise Rich and her beautiful daughter Daniella Rich Kilstock. The event honored producer and humanitarian Niki Cole and Rally Health Founder & CEO Grant Verstandig.
Maria Menounos was the emcee for the gorgeous gala. Her story is a powerful one - as she was caring for her mother this year who has stage 4 brain cancer, Maria had an MRI taken which revealed she had a meningioma brain tumor. In June she went through an extensive surgery to have it removed and has been recovering even since. Maria absolutely stunned at the event. It was an honor to have her host the Angel Ball and we could not be more proud of this incredible and inspiring woman.
The fun filled night featured a cocktail reception, dinner and live auction. Swoon-worthy auction items included the new Porche 911 GT2 RS selling for $500,000 each for a record breaking $1 Million dollars! Also an 18 karat Lorraine Schwartz white gold and diamond leaf motif earring set sold for $45,000, and a 5 night cruise aboard Denise Rich's luxury yacht the Lady Joy, sold for $150,000. Amazing items with all proceeds raised continuing to go towards critical cancer research through Gabrielle's Angel Foundation.
There were performances by the beautiful and talented Caly Bevier, a cancer survivor herself, who sang "Fight Song" as well as Gloria Gaynor, T-Pain and more.
From NYC housewives, to models, influencers and athletes, to 007 himself, it was an all-star crew that came out to show their support.
Since the organization was founded in 1996, the foundation has funded more then $30 million dollars in grants making it one of the largest sources of grant support for life saving cancer research in the nation. So inspiring on every level and total #goals watching this charitable organization bring their mission to life.
