Lanie and Chris Marcus welcomed over 100 guests to their beautiful Sands Point home for a summer cocktail reception on Thursday, July 21st in support of Tina’s Wish. The evening raised more than $100,000 for early detection ovarian cancer research.
The Marcus’ annual event honors the memory of Lanie’s late mother, Nadine Fladell, who passed away in 2013 from Stage III ovarian cancer at 63 years young. Nadine was a mother, grandmother, friend and confidante. She fought this terrible disease for eight years.
This year’s program opened with a heartfelt welcome from Lanie, followed by words from Tina’s Wish board member, Chief Judge Cecelia Morris of the SDNY Bankruptcy Court. Attendees also heard from Dr. Doug Levine of NYU Langone Cancer Center.
Many thanks to all of the sponsors and to everyone who contributed in support of this special event.
