Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation 2012

Saturday, October 27, 2012
Greenwich, CT

Norwalk based cancer research organization The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) joined forces with some of the biggest names in the music industry in its ongoing fight against cancer at the 15th Anniversary MMRF Fall Gala on October 27th. All funds raised at this special event - the biggest annual fund raiser in Fairfield County, will support the development of life-extending treatments for multiple myeloma, an incurable blood cancer.

The event, co-chaired by Karen and Michael Reinert, was attended by more than 1,300 supporters.  Michael Reinert is a Partner at Fox Rothschild LLP and is a member of the MMRF Board of Directors. Co-anchor of CNBC’s Squawk on the Street, Carl Quintanilla, served as Master of Ceremonies at the gala, which took place at the Hyatt Regency Greenwich in Old Greenwich, CT.

At this year’s event, five-time Grammy Award winner and music industry legend Clive J. Davis was honored with the MMRF Spirit of Hope Award, in recognition of his passion for helping his fellow man. Also, N. Anthony Coles, M.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Onyx Pharmaceuticals, Inc., was honored at the gala with the MMRF Corporate Leadership Award for Onyx’s leadership in the development and commercialization of innovative therapies for improving the lives of people with cancer.

The award ceremony was followed by a star-studded tribute concert in Davis’ honor featuring Academy Award-winning actress and Grammy Award-winning recording artist Jennifer Hudson, R&B and Pop sensation Earth, Wind & Fire and winner of NBC’s The Voice, Jermaine Paul.

The MMRF, which is based in Norwalk, CT, has been recognized as one of the nation’s most innovative cancer research organizations. Significant MMRF achievements made possible by funding from programs like the MMRF Fall Gala include: providing access to life-extending drugs for patients who need them, sequencing the multiple myeloma genome, and helping to bring five new myeloma drugs to market in less than 10 years – including the July 2012 FDA approval of Onyx’s KyprolisTM, to which the MMRF provided pivotal support to advance its development.
