Wings of Hope for Melanoma galas are the Melanoma Research Foundation’s premier fundraising events. Join the MRF at the 13th annual Wings of Hope for Melanoma New York gala as we recognize true heroes in the melanoma community, raise awareness and much-needed funding for melanoma research. In addition to giving the MRF's Humanitarian Award during the galas, Courage Awards are also presented to individuals who have shown tremendous strength in their battles with melanoma.
This event is SOLD OUT. Tickets will not be sold at the door.
Mitchell A. Kline, MD, Assistant Clinical Professor at the Weill Cornell Medical College of Weill New York, Presbyterian Medical Center Department of Dermatology will be awarded for his outstanding medical advances with the MRF's Humanitarian Award during the gala.
