New York Bid for the Kids

NEW APPROACH- JOIN US WITH A GIFT OF HOPE

The Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation (PCRF) is shifting this year’s Bid for the Kids gala scheduled for Thursday, November 19, 2020 to a simple call to action event. While we will miss the opportunity to be together as a community of cure seekers, we remain deeply committed to advancing pediatric cancer research forward because it is just as essential today as ever. Please support this mission as we walk together toward a full and healthy life for all children facing childhood cancer.
The need for funding traditionally raised by the Bid for the Kids gala is intensifying. All signs indicate that we will need to brace for significant and sustained economic damage as a result of the pandemic. Our best chance of fortifying our funding so research can continue without a loss of momentum during the next year and a half is by asking for your assistance.
Join us in raising $150,00 to ensure ongoing funding for the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation Laboratory directed by Mitchell S. Cairo, M.D. at the Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital at Westchester Medical Center and New York Medical College. The good news is: 100% of all donations will go directly to Dr. Cairo’s life-saving research. Your continued support is essential to maintaining the forward momentum of research advancements for pediatric cancer patients.
