Last week, Los Angeles Scene was invited to the Angel Ball Launch Party in support of Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation for Cancer Research at Tao Downtown. The cocktail party, a teaser before the main ball on October 20th, featured flowing champagne, delicious bites and sweet treats, all in the name of finding a cure. Notable attendees of this year’s kick-off event included Lorraine Schwartz, Star Jones, and Ivana Trump, all in support of this wonderful foundation.

Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation was founded for Gabrielle Rich Aouad, who survived Hodgkin’s lymphoma, but passed away at age 27 of acute myelogenous leukemia. The Foundation was started by her mother Denise Rich and two sisters Daniella and Ilona to honor her memory and help others. “Gabrielle truly believed in research. That’s where the mystery is going to unravel. That’s where the cures are going to be found,” explains Denise Rich.

Through hard work and fundraising, Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation has become the largest private source of grants to support blood cancer research and has now expanded into the UK to further their search for a cure. With their focus on cancer prevention, detection, and treatment in mind, over 130 junior investigators have been funded twenty-five million dollars by this amazing organization!

Interested in showing your support and having an unforgettable night? The highly anticipated annual Angel Ball on Monday October 20th at Cipriani Wall Street is one of the NY social scene’s highlights. The money raised at the ball will help benefit Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation and will honor His Excellency Yousef Al Otaiba ambassador of the United Arab Emirates, four-time Nascar Cup Series Champion Jeff Gordon, Chief executive officer Jho Low, and multi-Grammy award-winning producer and composer Nile Rogers. Hosted by Entertainment Tonight’s Rocsi Diaz, and featuring performances by honoree Nile Rodgers & Chic, DJ Ruckus, and a very special surprise guest.
