Tinseltown’s finest flocked to Cipriani in New York last night, in honor of DKMS’ 4th Annual Gala: Linked Against Leukemia, which raised $1.7 million! Including a special performance by Jon Bon Jovi, the gala welcomed Halle Berry, Eva Mendes, Estelle, Kylie Minogue, Solange Knowles, Whitney Port, Olivia Palermo, Vera Wang, Derek Lam, Coco Rocha, and more! The event space was illuminated by red light, DKMS’ signature color.
DKMS is the world’s largest bone marrow donor center. More than 20,000 of its donors have helped to save the lives of friends, family, and strangers by donating their bone marrow to leukemia patients. At the event, Island Def Jam chairman LA Reid, was recognized with the “DKMS Linked Against Leukemia Award” for his ongoing dedication to fighting cancer and supporting charities with the same mission.
CGG took to the red carpet to get the scoop from all the stars on the importance of raising awareness about the need for bone marrow donors. Stay tuned for the footage, which includes advice from Katharina Harf, co-founder of DKMS Americas—who wore a stunning red dress—and a chat with a special, surprise guest!
