We are incredibly grateful for the commitment of our donors who make the important work of SIR Foundation possible. If we won't be with you at Gala 2022, we hope to see you in Phoenix in 2023!
A look back at the 2019 Gala
SIR Foundation celebrated 30 years of illuminating innovation at its Gala on Sunday night, which honored John Abele, FSIR, with the 2019 Frederick S. Keller, MD, Philanthropy Award. Mr. Abele accepted the award from his home in Vermont.
SIR Foundation Chair Jeremy C. Durack, MD, MS, FSIR, of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Development Division and Gala Committee Chair Theresa M. Caridi, MD, FSIR, of MedStar Georgetown Hospital, served as co-hosts for the evening.
The event also featured guest speaker Rahul A. Sheth, MD, from the MD Anderson Cancer Center, who has received three SIR Foundation grants and recently obtained NIH funding. During the inaugural balloon auction, attendees received a balloon for their generous donations to SIR Foundation.
In total, the 2019 Gala raised $553,000 for SIR Foundation. Thank you to all who made the evening such a success.
