The stars were on a lucky streak with their fashion hits when they graced the Queen of Hearts Ball & Casino Night red carpet!
Healthcare company CareOne hosted the lavish event to support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation at Guastavino’s in New York City on February 9th.
“I lost my sister to breast cancer at the young age of 50, that’s one of the reasons I’m here,” guest Dr. Ranjita Sengupta told AMI. “I know she’s watching over me and I know she’s not here anymore, but if I’m able to contribute today I feel like I’ll be able to do something for her.”
The event featured live music, casino games, entertainers, 1920’s-inspired cocktails and a gourmet buffet dinner!
With all proceedings from the event donated directly to the BCRF, CareOne raised $1.7 million! New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul presented the check to the BCRF’s president Myra Biblowit with help from CareOne EVP Elizabeth Straus and CareOne CEO Daniel E. Straus.
“Cancer is becoming like a chronic disease,” attendee Dr. Juhee Gupta said. “Within five years, everyone could be cured!”
