Event Details: This year’s event will salute Italy, with honorary patrons H.E. the Ambassador of Italy Claudio Bisogniero and Mrs. Laura Bisogniero. Former Congresswoman and cancer survivor the Honorable Ellen Tauscher will be receiving this year’s Cancer Champion Award. Foundation board member and acclaimed celebrity party planner David Tutera of WEtv’s “My Fair Wedding” will design the event. The theme of the gala will salute Italy’s “Year of Italian Culture 2013” and highlight “La Festa della Donna,” Italy’s “Women’s Day” celebration held on March 8. The Gala will also feature a silent auction showcasing a variety of exciting and highly coveted items ranging from once-in-a-lifetime experiences such as a week’s stay in a stunning eight bedroom farmhouse in Tuscany to a slot in the famed Alaskan Waterfall Fishing Tournament. All proceeds go toward the event’s fundraising goal of $1.4 million.
