The Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation will host its 18th Annual Benefit Dinner & Auction, honoring men’s fashion designer John Varvatos on Thursday, November 12th, 2015, at Cipriani Wall Street.

Known affectionately by New Yorkers as “The Waxman,” this yearly fête is considered to be among the top fundraising events in New York City, attended by more than 1,200 corporate executives, board members, and their guests. In recent years, “The Waxman” has raised millions of dollars to support the Foundation’s research efforts to produce a cure for cancer. Past celebrity performers have included Ziggy Marley, Train, Peter Frampton, Gregg Allman, Kid Rock, Steely Dan, Glenn Frey, Joe Walsh, Sheryl Crow and Counting Crows.

This year, the event will feature a special performance from legendary American singer-songwriter, John Fogerty. The evening will be hosted by Chris Wragge, co-anchor of CBS 2 News This Morning, as master of ceremony. The evening’s much-anticipated live and silent auctions will offer guests the opportunity to bid on an exciting selection of exclusive items.
