On November 20th, The Mary Claire Satterly Foundation will host the 3rd Annual Fall Gala & Silent Auction to directly fund one of the country's most promising pediatric AML research scientists, Dr. Phoenix Ho.? At the Meshinchi Lab, a part of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington, Dr. Ho spends every day researching a cure for pediatric AML leukemia. Worldwide, this lab is one of the single most prominent facilities doing research on pediatric AML biology.

Through funds raised, the Foundation will also launch the UNC Mary Claire Satterly Digital Art Therapy Program at MC's Playroom in Chapel Hill to improve the quality of life for pediatric cancer patients and continue to spread MC's creative and artistic passions to the youngsters at UNC... her favorite place on earth?

After a one-year hiatus (last year's event was held in Mary Claire's home state of North Carolina), the much-anticipated event will return to New York and the Museum of the City of New York will once again serve as the magical backdrop for this winter wonderland themed celebration.? This year's event will also grow beyond the confines of the museum walls and we will erect a large-scale tent on the veranda for a spirited evening that includes cocktails, hors devours, gift bags, silent auction and music by the Lee Olive Ensemble all under the stars. In addition, other select galleries will be available for viewing to all celebration attendees.
