NY Stem Cell Foundation Gala Held at Lincoln Center, Paul Goldberger and Jacob Gottlieb in Attendance
The 2018 NYSCF Gala included an impressive lineup of guests representing leaders in science, medicine, and the arts, as well as international business leaders and supporters of NYSCF. The guest list included such luminaries as past honorees David A. Carmel, Alan M. Cohen, Victoria Gordon, and Andreas C. Dracopoulos, as well as celebrities such as Martha Stewart, Matt Dillon, Byron Wien, Elie Tahari, and Seth Meyers of “Late Night With Seth Meyers,” who entertained guests with a video created specifically for the occasion.
Other notable guests included Hugh Hildesly, Vice Chairman for the Americas at Sotheby’s; Pulitzer Prize winning architecture critic and author Paul Goldberger; and noted business leader Jacob Gottlieb, CEO of Altium Capital, a New-York based global leader in the field of medical investments who provides investment opportunities in the most impressive companies that are transforming the healthcare industry. Specifically, Altium Capital focuses on promising ventures and companies that are spearheading significant historical advances in the health and medical industry such as the stem cell research carried out by NYSCF and its many colleagues and collaborators.
Several notable artists were also on hand, including Clifford Ross and John Newsom, among many others who donated works for the silent auction held at the event. Newsom’s piece, a charcoal rendering of the moon, was actually inspired in the concept of stem cell research. Explains the artist, “I was working on a series of paintings depicting the full moon and was thinking of the image of the circle and stem cells and cells, and then the idea of the moon, and it came to me that it was a nice correlation,” he said.
