The Children's Cancer & Blood Foundation is to hold its annual Breakthrough Spirit Awards on October 20.

Following the success of last year’s event, the organization will once again host the event at New York’s Plaza Hotel.

The event will honor Grammy Award-winning singer Toni Braxton, actor, writer and commentator Charles Grodin, and media entrepreneur and philanthropist Ted Turner, each of whom has dedicated their time, energy and resources to philanthropic endeavors on behalf of children in need. The evening will feature a special performance by Toni Braxton and a live auction led by Jamie Niven, Vice Chairman, Sotheby’s.

“Our research and clinical staff are the best in the world, and we are on the cutting edge of developing cures and the best treatments for children suffering from a range of cancers and blood diseases,” said Foundation chairperson Les Lieberman. “The money we have raised has gone to building a new state-of-the art laboratory, funding new fellowship positions for young scientists and doctors, and has helped develop new treatments for these serious diseases. These funds also ensure that no child or family is left behind regardless of ability to pay, and that is very important to all of us at CCBF.”

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 hopefully lead to improved care and cures.
