2020 Tower of Hope Gala

On May 12th Tower Cancer Research Foundation celebrated its 18th Annual Tower of Hope Gala raising $1.1 million dollars to fund innovative scientific research and patient support. Held in the midst of a rising global pandemic, team Tower successfully navigated the journey and this year’s re-imagined virtual event yielded record-breaking success.

Honoring such prominent members of the Tower community was a key factor in its success. Honorees Dr. Barry Rosenbloom and his grateful patient and cancer warrior, Michele Kaplan, were awarded the Healing and Humanity awards at this year’s event. The challenges of facing cancer and COVID-19 simultaneously drove home the message to our supporters to continue our efforts during a global pandemic which had resounding impact and significant results.
