The Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation will host its 19th Annual Benefit Dinner & Auction, honoring footwear industry icon Vince Camuto and featuring a musical performance by the legendary Roger Daltrey of The Who on Thursday, November 10th, 2016, at Cipriani Wall Street.
The event will mark the fortieth anniversary of the founding of the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation (SWCRF) by noted oncologist Samuel Waxman, M.D. and will introduce the SWCRF Vince Camuto Memorial Cancer Research Program in honor of Vince Camuto, founder of Camuto Group, who passed away of prostate cancer in 2015. Louise Camuto, Chief Creative Officer of Camuto Group, will accept the honor in memory of her husband.
The evening will be hosted by Chris Wragge, co-anchor of CBS 2 News This Morning, as master of ceremonies. The evening’s much-anticipated live and silent auctions will offer guests the opportunity to bid on an exciting selection of exclusive items.
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, John Fogerty, and Counting Crows.
