Last night, The Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center held their spring ball at the Temple of Dendur at The Metropolitan Museum of Art to raise funds for the society's newest project, Gene Targeted Cell Therapy Program for Pediatric Resistant Leukemia. The Society was founded in 1946 as a place to develop better patient care and treatment and to support cancer research. The ball raised more than $1.8 million for the initiative. The event was co-hosted by Tory Burch, Jamie Tisch, Caryn Zucker, Muffie Potter Aston. Guests were treated to a special performance by Rob Thomas, who sang his hit songs, Her "Diamonds," "3 A.M.," "Fall On Me," and "Lonely No More."
