New York - The 13th Annual Collaborating For a Cure Dinner and Auction will benefit the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation (SWCRF). Headlined by Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow, the evening will take place at the New York City landmark Park Avenue Armory.

Known affectionately by New Yorkers as "The Waxman," the yearly fête is considered to be among the top annual fundraising events in New York City, attended by more than 1,200 corporate executives, Board Members and their guests. The Waxman has raised several million dollars to support the Foundation's research efforts to produce a cure for cancer. Past supporters have included Chevy Chase, Steely Dan, Glenn Frey, Joe Walsh, John Fogerty and Counting Crows.

The evening's much-anticipated live and silent auctions will offer guests the opportunity to bid on an exciting selection of exclusive items. The Live Auction will be led by C. Hugh Hildesley of Sotheby's Auction House. Live and Silent Auction items are on display at www.charitybuzz.com prior to the event.

The Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation is an international organization dedicated to curing and preventing cancer. The Foundation is a pioneer in cancer research, focusing on uncovering the causes of cancer and reprogramming cancer cells. SWCRF is dedicated to delivering tailored, minimally toxic treatments to patients. Their mission is to eradicate cancer by bridging the gap between lab science and the patient. Through a collaborative group of world-class scientists, the Institute Without Walls, investigators share information and tools to speed the pace of cancer research. Since its inception in 1976, the Foundation has awarded more than $75 million to support the work of more than 175 researchers across the globe.

Imagine a world in which cancer can be treated without disrupting life, can be cured or can even be prevented.

The event will be held on Thursday, November 18, at the Park Avenue Armory at 643 Park Avenue between 66th and 67th Streets in New York City. Cocktails will be served at 6:30 p.m. and dinner at 8 p.m. The live auction will begin at 9:15 p.m. followed by the concert at 9:45 p.m. RSVP by calling 212-967-6900.
