NTFC HostsAfter three long years, the 19th Annual Night to Fight Cancer benefitting The Life Raft Group’s research programs hosted by Jerry Cudzil and Matthew Knopman took place IN PERSON on October 20th, 2022 at Midtown Loft and Terrace in New York City!

Jerry and Matt were beyond overwhelmed that after two years of Virtual NTFC events, over 150 participants came to continue to support this long-standing, fundraising event! Throughout the COVID Pandemic many things have changed, but the support for Jerry and Matt has remained strong.

Just as Night to Fight Cancer was back, so was our fantastic catering team – Scoozi Events! Our attendees enjoyed the State Bird Modern Buffet Station accompanied by buttermilk biscuits, mac & cheese and a green goddess salad with their specialty cocktail of the evening “Cool as a Cuke.” Guests finished the night with Scoozi’s famous Desconstructed S’mores, assorted cakes, and cocktail gummy bears.

While casino games took place on the terrace, the poker tournament took place on the main floor so all guests were able to see the lively game!

Congratulations the winners of the evening:1st Place: Jeff Leach, 2nd Place: Michael DiSanto, &3rd Place: Michael Lee!
