American Cancer Society Gala of Hope

On Saturday, April 28, the American Cancer Society (ACS) held its annual Gala of Hope, raising money and awareness of ACS’ mission, at the Hall of Springs in Saratoga Springs. The black-tie affair was nothing short of a major success, with Anthony Ianniello’s trio of entities—Ianniello Anderson, saratoga living and Putnam Place—acting as presenting sponsors for the night’s soirée. Brit Drahos and Bill Perry hosted the Starcam on the red carpet, while the event itself was orchestrated by ACS’ Lizzie Hunter. The night’s schedule included featuring special honoree, Jeanne Walsh, a live auction, surf-and-turf sit-down meal and busy dance floor, with tunes provided by local favorites Soul Session. The most moving part of evening came when the house lights were turned off, and people who had been affected by cancer were asked to raise glow sticks, illuminating the darkened room. It was a stark reminder that the fight against cancer is an ongoing battle. Take a look at some highlights from the evening in the accompanying photo gallery.
