Alan Hirschfield dined with friend, Drew Nieporent, restaurateur of New York’s Nobu, Tribeca Grill and Layla.
Hirschfield, a member of the Cure For Lymphoma Foundation board, recently made a generous and exciting $500,000 donation to the foundation’s research program. It will serve as a challenge grant to be matched by other donors to total $1 million.
The cabaret raised $1 million for CFL, which will fund the continuing fight against lymphoma, the second fastest rising cancer. The Cure For Lymphoma Foundation (CFL) is a nationwide, non-profit organization dedicated to easing the burden and finding a cure for Hodgkin's disease and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
CFL was founded in 1994 by lymphoma survivor Jerry Freundlich and a committed group of friends as a way to promote research and create a caring community for all those touched by this disease.
Thanks to the generosity and leadership of a wide array of supporters and advisors, the CFLhas evolved into a major national force in the battle against lymphoma. It funds top-level cutting edge research and provides tens of thousands of people with information, support and hope.
