The Children’s Cancer & Blood Foundation (CCBF) hosted its annual “Breakthrough Ball” benefit gala on Tuesday evening, October 29, 2013 in the Grand Ballroom of the Plaza Hotel. A stunning success, the evening raised over $1 million to provide medication, chemotherapy and other life-saving treatments to thousands of children at the Division of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology of New York Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center.
