Attendees were treated to light hors d’oeuvres and prosecco. At the same time, they shopped to support the Foundation’s cancer research programs, such as the International Network on Aging and Cancer and the Women’s Cancer Research Program.

In addition, through the Foundation’s collaborative group of world-class scientists, the Institute Without Walls, investigators share information and tools to speed the pace of cancer research. Since its inception in 1976, the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation has awarded more than $100 million to support the work of more than 200 researchers across the globe.
