Rock For a Cure

The Red Ribbon Foundation held its eleventh biennial gala.



The Capitol Theatre, often referred to as a “Rock Palace,” was transformed into an elegant dining room for 400 guests when the Red Ribbon Foundation held its eleventh biennial gala. The theme of the evening was SAFE sex, drugs and rock ‘n’roll. Allegra Dance Studio of Greenwich kicked off the night with a flash mob and Mark McGrath from multi-platinum band Sugar Ray closed the night with a medley of his No. 1 hits. CNN’s A. J. Hammer served as the evening’s emcee and Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy and U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal were on hand to show their support. Dr. Jeffrey Laurence and Gary Dell’Abate (executive producer of the Howard Stern Show) both received awards for their tireless efforts to find a cure for AIDS. Dell’Abate’s award was presented in memory of his brother Steven who died of the disease in 1991. Since 1994, the Red Ribbon Foundation, based in Greenwich, has raised $2.5 million to fight AIDS. redribbonfoundation.org
