The Empire State Building was lit red and white on Thursday night in celebration of a star-studded charity event in New York.
Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson hosted the 4th annual DKMS Gala at Cipriani 42nd Street on April 29, which attracted a plethora of guests including Halle Berry, Kylie Minogue, Eva Mendes, Estelle, Solange Knowles and Whitney Port. Entertainment was provided by Jon Bon Jovi.
Halle Berry presented Island Def Jam Chairman Antonio ‘LA’ Reid with the DKMS Linked Against Leukemia Award in recognition of his tireless work in fighting cancer and supporting organizations and charities which do the same. The award has been awarded to Cindy Crawford in the past.
“I am extremely honored to receive the prestigious DKMS Linked Against Leukemia Award,” said LA Reid, Chairman, Island Def Jam Music Group. “Leukemia affects thousands of people every year and kills more children in the U.S. than any other disease. Many patients could be saved by a bone marrow transplant, but there simply aren’t enough donors to save everyone. I encourage everyone to sign up to save a life.”
DKMS is an organization that connects bone marrow and stem cell donors with patients in need. With assistance from donors and patients, family and friends, DKMS has become the largest donor center in the world.
