Be sure to tune in or set your DVR tomorrow morning, extra early at 6am when Lymphoma Program Director, Dr. John Leonard will appear on Fox 5’s Good Day Street Talk with current patient Robert Azopardi to discuss the Lymphoma Program at Weill Cornell/NewYork Presbyterian Hospital and the forthcoming LLS Light the Night event on Thursday, October 6 beginning at 5:30 pm in Rumsey Playfield Central Park.
Additional information about this event can be made on our Light the Night team page.
The results are in and the first annual Pie-in-the-face event was a smashing success! We raised $3500 for the The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society as part of the 2016 Light The Night campaign.
Obviously the highlight of the event was Lymphoma Program Director, Dr. John Leonard receiving a pie in the face from his esteemed colleague Dr. Peter Martin. Look at that fakeout!
Asked about his pie throwing heroics after the event Dr. Martin said, “Sometimes this job requires us to make tough decisions, like should I throw the pie with my left hand or right hand? At first I was nervous about throwing a pie at my boss…just kidding, it was awesome.”
More pics of the event can be found here. Thanks to the Meyer Cancer Center & Englander Institute for Precision Medicine for organizing this event. Additional donations can be made on our Light the Night team page.
The Meyer Cancer Center & Englander Institute for Precision Medicine are hosting a friendly competition to raise money for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society as part of the Light The Night campaign.
Pick who you want to get pied by donating to their “pie fund”. If the fund reaches its $250 goal, that person will get pied. The biggest donors get the honor of launching the pies.
The pie recipients can save themselves by doling out their own dough, matching the money raised in their fund. They can then designate someone else to get the pie.
