Kimmel Cancer Center Jefferson Tribute Dinner
Stephen K. Klasko, MD, president and CEO of TJU, spoke of the groundbreaking cancer research going on at the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center, and the generous $110 million gift by the Sidney Kimmel Foundation which will allow them to go lighting-speed ahead toward a cure for the horrendous disease. He was also delighted to announce that now that Market Street East is called Jefferson Station, people arriving at the station will be greeted by a TJU shuttle to take them to any of the buildings on the TJU campus.
He then praised the Eagles for all they do to raise funds for cancer research, and introduced Don Smolenski, president of the Eagles organization, who accepted on behalf of the team. Smolenski was grateful for the honor, paid tribute to those he knew battling cancer, and paid tribute to Phillies president David Montgomery in his fight against cancer. After dinner and the program, guests boogied down on the dance floor to the tunes of DJ Brickhouse.
