Tina’s Wish Benefit Raises $1.4M to Support Ovarian Cancer Early Detection Research
In the ninth year of raising funds for ovarian cancer (OC), the annual Tina’s Wish benefit gathered more than 700 supporters to raise $1.4 million for early detection research. The event took place Sept. 26 at New York's American Museum of Natural History. Tina’s Wish is an annual benefit dinner during Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month that honors the memory of former Southern District of New York U.S. Bankruptcy Court Chief Judge Tina Brozman. Brozman became the youngest judge appointed to the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for New York's Southern District when she was 32 years old, and eventually became the chief judge of that court. Brozman was 54 years when she died in June 2007, two years after a late ovarian cancer diagnosis. She was remembered by most as an innovative jurist and a mentor to many young professionals. This year’s event honored Lisa Donahue, AlixPartners’ managing director and global head of the Turnaround and Restructuring Group. Donahue -- with AlixPartners -- have been a sponsor of the Dinner Committee every year since the foundation’s inception, and Donahue served as a dinner co-chair for the 2015 benefit dinner. Donahue was friends with Tina Brozman and, like Brozman, is a leader in her community. Her character and leadership skills honor the legacy of Brozman, according to the foundation, in whose memory the award was presented. "This foundation is so important not only because of the critical nature of the work they are doing but also because of the unique way that they are doing it," Donahue said in a press release.
