PIER SIXTY AT CHELSEA PIERS,
NEW YORK CITY
The Honorable Joseph R. Biden Jr.
"Cancer touches us all in some way and at some point. Everywhere I go, people share their stories of heartbreak and hope. And every day, I’m reminded that our work to end cancer as we know it is bigger than just a single person. It carries the hopes and dreams of millions of people who are praying that we succeed, praying for hope, praying for time — not someday, but now."—Joe Biden

Thanks to generous and loyal supporters like you, the Gala raised more than $6.9 million
for student financial aid and the Stony Brook Cancer Center.

Each year we give guests at the Gala a small token of appreciation. This year we did
something different and in lieu of a favor, we purchased a therapeutic device that
makes life just a little bit easier for our pediatric cancer patients.
It arrived the other day, and it’s already been a big hit with our patients, child
life therapists and doctors.
