Christina Renna Foundation Holds 16th Annual Angel’s Wish Gala
The Christina Renna Foundation (CRF) held its 16th annual Angel’s Wish Gala at the Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury on Jan. 28.
This year’s event raised over $30,000 to support Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory’s (CSHL’s) ongoing rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) research. RMS is a rare and often fatal form of pediatric cancer affecting muscle, bone, and connective tissue. The event honored CSHL Professor Christopher Vakoc with the 2023 CRF Research Award for his leadership of the laboratory’s Sarcoma Research Project. The Christina Renna Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity supporting children’s cancer research and furthering awareness and education through the support of cancer groups and outreach programs for the direct support of those in need. Funds raised through this event will go to continued research into rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS), a rare and often fatal form of pediatric cancer. In total, CRF has donated over $350,000 to research at CSHL. For more information, please visit: www.crf4acure.org
