Supports the Black Swan Research Initiative
The International Myeloma Foundation (IMF), the first and largest myeloma-specific foundation in the world, will present its 12th Annual Comedy Celebration – the foundation’s premier fundraising gala, on Saturday, November 3 at The Wilshire Ebell Theatre.
The evening will include a pre-show cocktail reception and silent auction, two-hour comedy show, and a post-show party for VIP ticket holders. The red carpet arrivals will live stream exclusively on IMF’s Facebook (Facebook.com/myeloma) from 6PM-8PM PT.
The live stream, co-hosted by TV personality Alie Ward and former pageant queen Daphne Lee(Miss Black USA 2017) will feature red carpet interviews with celebrity attendees and myeloma experts.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Peter Boyle Research Fund and support the signature Black Swan Research Initiative® (BSRI). Renowned actor Peter Boyle died in late 2006 after a four-year battle with myeloma, an incurable cancer of the bone marrow and one of the fastest growing blood cancers in the world. Through laughter, the event honors Boyle and raises money for research to find a cure.
Additionally, the IMF 12th Annual Comedy Celebration will honor world-renowned myeloma expert Dr. Robert A. Kyle for his contributions to the myeloma community as a doctor, researcher, and professor of medicine.
Tickets are available now at comedy.myeloma.org.
