KCC’s 3rd Annual Men’s Event


Another successful year! The Kimmel Cancer Center hosted its 3rd annual Men’s Event at the Prime Rib in Philadelphia on November 15.

About 150 people joined Richard Pestell, M.D., Ph.D., Director, Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson, Leonard Gomella, M.D., Chair, Department of Urology at Jefferson and 2011 Men’s Event Co-Chairs Edward Glickman, President of Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust, and Joseph Weiss, Chairman, Electronic Ink, for an evening of cocktails, dinner, entertainment, auctions and friends.

The dinner and auction raised more than $100,000 to build awareness about prostate cancer and benefit research at Jefferson’s National Cancer Institute Designated Cancer Center.

At this year’s event, John W. Buehler, Jr., a prostate cancer survivor and KCC patient, received the “Symbol of Courage” award, and Kenny Boone was recognized for his support of prostate cancer research and awareness with a “Symbol of Caring” award.

Here’s a glimpse of the night.
