2012 Annual Comedy Gala

On Thursday, March 15th, over 370 friends of Gilda’s Club Westchester joined together at the Ritz-Carlton for a night of laughter and camaraderie to support our mission to provide emotional and social support to any one touched by any type of cancer in our community.

We were proud to pay special recognition to Wendy Kleinman and Jodi Shapiro, who were presented with the “Red Door Award” for their generosity and support of our mission. Carol Bennett-Schnorr was given the “Volunteer of the Year” award for her many years of extraordinary and tireless service to Gilda’s Club and Ernst and Young was named our Corporate Honoree. During the evening, guests were entertained by Jenna Wolfe, the co-anchor of NBC News “Weekend Today,” who served as Master of Ceremonies, and by Mario Cantone of “Sex and the City” and “The View.” Ruth Planos, a member of Gilda’s Club, also spoke about her cancer experience and how Gilda’s Club has helped her and her family learn to live with cancer.
