Friends & Family Dinner

$400,000 raised in 2021, exceeding our goal by $150,000

A night to remember… 

On October 24, 2021, we hosted our first Friends and Family Dinner Fundraiser at Il Cantinori Manhattan. We came together to memorialize Jed and officially launch The Jed Ian Taxel Foundation for Rare Cancer Research and its mission: funding innovative rare cancer research and accelerating discovery of treatments that can save lives. Our heartfelt thanks to more than 200 very generous donors including our 90 dinner attendees. We couldn’t have accomplished this fundraiser without our incredible donors, foundation board members and volunteers, our sponsors Casamigos Tequila and Positive Promotions, and staff at Il Cantinori.

How did the foundation accomplish so much in such a short period of time?

  • Credit our defining a clear mission, with clear and present need. 
  • Credit our active volunteer Board of Directors with their diverse skills and capabilities who all leaned into making our first year exceed all its goals. 
  • Credit our ability to build strong relationships with donors, medical centers and leaders, patients and families, government, and much more to come…
