05.30.08   A TEA IN D.C.
More than 150 women joined Carol Klein and Nancy Moses for Sunday tea on May 4th at the Four Seasons Hotel. The afternoon event raised more than $55,000. A generous donor then matched that amount, for a total of more than $110,000, all earmarked for IMF-supported myeloma research.

Music Against Myeloma, a benefit for the IMF put on in honor of Mark Rubin by his son Slava, is in its third year and attracts top musical acts from the New York area. This year, even Tony Orlando got into the act.

An Evening of Comedy with Family & Friends
The IMF held its annual Gala event on November 10, 2007. This year’s event was truly amazing and quite a break from past events. It was an all-star comedy line-up with Ray Romano, Patricia Heaton, Doris Roberts, Jeff Garlin, Richard Lewis, Martin Short and Fred Willard.

One amazing night in August, Spinal Tap headlined a concert to raise funds to benefit the IMF. A crowd of over 1000 people packed the historic Avalon Theater in Hollywood to hear Christopher Guest, Michael McKean and Harry Shearer and their friends at the first ever Concert For A Cause.

08.02.07   MY MMAMM EXPERIENCE
July 15th found me in a charming little town on Long Island at Tupelo Honey, a lovely little restaurant owned by Willie Stephens, who for the 6th year running, has opened his establishment for the day to supporters of Multiple Musicians against Multiple Myeloma.

04.27.07   The F.O.R. (Friends of Richie) Benefit Story
A series of little decisions. That's how it happened. We raised the awareness about multiple myeloma. Raised some money for the cause. Made a whole bunch of music. Hung out with good people. It doesn't get any better.

11.02.06   What a Night! Report from the IMF's 16th Anniversary Gala
An elegant ballroom...Spirited company...The host of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous...What more could you ask for on a Saturday night!?! On October 21st, 250 friends of the International Myeloma Foundation gathered for the IMF's 16th Annual Gala at the beautiful Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills.

07.25.06   Rock On!
On July 9th, the 5th Annual Multiple Musicians Against Multiple Myeloma concert was held at Tupelo Honey, in the beautiful seaside community of Sea Cliff, NY. Band after band played on all day long, with singers jumping up onstage to support the event in honor of IMFer Lee Grayson.

06.15.06   JC Golf Tournament a Stellar Success!
Tickets for the event sold out in record time, with almost 200 golfers and 240 diners registered. And the registrations kept coming in even after the tournament reached capacity.

06.01.06   My Journey Through Myeloma
Throughout my journey with myeloma, the IMF has been a source of information and encouragement for me and my family. We wanted to do something to express our gratitude. On the weekend of April 21, 2006, at the 8th Annual Heart of Dixie American Bulldog Specialty we set up a booth at the dog show, and handed out IMF printed materials and sold the burgundy IMF bracelets. My family is so pleased to have been able to contribute our efforts to help the foundation that has helped me so much.
