More than 350 of New York City’s young professionals gathered at The Metropolitan Club in November for the annual Friends of Mount Sinai Fall Fete to benefit the Young Scientist Cancer Research Fund (YSCRF) of The Tisch Cancer Institute. Danielle and Drew Anderman, Jenny and Benjamin Fischbach, Tracey Hanfling, and Elizabeth Right chaired the event that included appetizers and cocktails, dancing, and a silent auction.
Tyler Friedman, Chair of the Friends of Mount Sinai, welcomed the guests and thanked them for attending. The mission of the Friends of Mount Sinai is to cultivate the next generation of leadership and support for The Mount Sinai Medical Center.
“The Fall Fete is just one of the many ways to get involved with the Friends of Mount Sinai,” Mr. Friedman said. “I encourage you to experience our educational and social activities, and help further our commitment to The Mount Sinai Medical Center.”
The YSCRF supports young scientists who are pursuing innovative cancer research that can be translated into effective cancer therapies. Proceeds from the 2012 Fall Fete will be used to establish an award for a promising young scientist at Mount Sinai, and provide two years of funding for a cancer research project.
