Prostate Cancer Foundation hosts ‘Dinner at Daniel’, featuring special performance from Diana Ross

The Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF), a nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the world’s most promising cancer research, hosted – “Dinner at Daniel” – on Monday, December 8, 2014, at Restaurant Daniel in New York City. The intimate and memorable event celebrated the Holiday season and supported the organization’s work in prostate cancer research.

Over 120 of the organization’s most loyal supporters gathered at Restaurant Daniel in the elegant Main Dining Room for cocktails before enjoying a specially prepared menu by the legendary Chef Daniel Boulud. The unique menu included roasted procini with parsley coulis, pan-seared black sea bass, poularde demi-deuil, and red apple dessert with caramelized ginger apple, sable Breton and maple ice cream.

PCF Founder and Chairman Michael Milken addressed the audience and highlighted new advances made in the fight against prostate cancer by PCF. The organization’s CEO Dr. Jonathan Simmons also spoke, along with Bonnie Pfeifer Evans, trustee of the Charles Evans Foundation which partners with PCF. Following dinner, guests were treated to a special musical performance by Motown superstar, Diana Ross, who sang a medley of her classic songs, including “I Will Survive”, “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” and “Baby Love”.

Firmly committed to curing prostate cancer, the Prostate Cancer Foundation is the leading philanthropic organization funding and accelerating research globally. Since 1993, its unique strategies for identifying and investing in the most promising research programs have generated life-saving results. The organization channels resources to the world’s top scientific minds—cutting red tape and encouraging collaboration to speed breakthroughs.
