10/31/2008 - By Plaza Hotel

Children’s Cancer & Blood Foundation Breakthrough Ball Gala

(New York, NY – October 31, 2008) The Children’s Cancer & Blood Foundation (CCBF) hosted its annual “Breakthrough Ball” fundraising gala on Tuesday evening, at the Plaza Hotel in New York City.

The Foundation raised over $1.5 million for treatment and research into the causes of childhood cancers and blood diseases. Proceeds from this benefit will ensure that the CCBF continues its exceptional mission to provide the very best up-to-date treatments for young people, as well as engage in breakthrough research that will lead to improved care and cures.

Charles Grodin served as master of ceremonies, and NFL great Tiki Barber, last year’s honoree, was this year’s special guest. The 2008 Breakthrough Spirit Award was given to artist, musician and producer, Swizz Beatz; actor/activist Steve Guttenberg; major league star and Yankee analyst Al Leiter; and Laureen Kelley, founder, Save One Life, Inc.

For more information on the CCBF, please contact Jennifer Zaleski at (212) 297.4339 or visit www.ChildrensCBF.org.
