A Magical Evening – Christopher Reeve Foundation Gala

The Christopher Reeve Foundation “A Magical Evening” Gala was held November 6, 2006 in New York, NY. The Christopher Reeve Foundation is dedicated to curing spinal cord injury by funding innovative research, and improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis through grants, information and advocacy.

“We all know that it is not a disability or diagnosis that defines a man or woman, but how you chose to live your life. With Chris and Dana it was never ‘why me’, but I’m ‘still me’.
-Christopher Reeve Foundation President and CEO Kathy Lewis, seen here with Matthew, Alexandra and Will Reeve.

Cristina Carlino, the Founder and CEO of philosophy, inc. was presented the Dana Reeve HOPE Award last night. Here she is sharing a gift with the Reeve children.

The Gala was co-hosted by Harvey Fierstein and Bebe Neuwirth.

The Jersey Boys were among the entertainment and guest list.

The hope and the work of the Christopher Reeve Foundation was demonstrated last night when 3-year-old Chase Ford took the stage. As Chase’s mother Renee Ford explained, Chase was paralyzed from the neck down in an accident just 18-months ago. Through the Foundation’s funding of their NeuroRecovery Network Chase walked across the stage and waved to the audience.
