Stars Shine at SCF Gala


Brooke Shields, True Blood star Nelsan Ellis, Katie Lee Joel, past and present castmates from the The Real Housewives of New York City and more turned up to fête The Skin Cancer Foundation’s annual gala on October 9 at The Plaza hotel.

Hosted by Good Morning America weather anchor Sam Champion and Extra’s Jerry Penacoli, the gala honored PGA Tour’s Allison Keller, Genentech’s Rick Fair and Self editor in chief Lucy Danziger. Guests were also treated to a performance by upcoming singer-songwriter Peter Cincotti.

Founded in 1979 and helmed by president Dr. Perry Robins, The Skin Cancer Foundation is the only international organization devoted to combating the world’s most common form of cancer.

Proceeds from the gala, Robins noted, benefit some of its most important initiatives, including its widely-viewed website, its anti-tanning youth education programs and its over 16,245 free skin cancer screenings offered on a Road to Healthy Skin Tour across the country.
