Tips to maximize your fun at the Women in Sarcoma Virtual Gala

GIST Cook Cookbook1. Dress up! In the midst of a pandemic, there haven’t been many occasions to ‘glam it up’. Pull out your favorite cocktail dress, bridesmaids’ dress, or fancy suit that’s been hiding at the back of your closet! Wear those pearls! Don that tiara! Have fun with it even though no one can see you.

2. Prepare some fancy, fun snacks. If you need ideas, there are some great recipes in the LRG GIST Cook Cookbook.

3. Prepare our Gala signature cocktail or make up your own & share. Or pour some ginger ale in a champagne glass. This cocktail was created by Dr. Sandra D’Angelo, Medical Oncologist, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
