Rebels With A Cause 2014


The Center for Applied Molecular Medicine (CAMM) and the USC Norris Westside Cancer Center (WCC) celebrated its second annual Rebels With A Cause gala on March 20th, 2014. This special event, hosted by Brad and Cassandra Grey, Paramount Pictures, and Lynne and Marc Benioff supported the cancer research done by Dr. David Agus. The evening’s honoree was Larry Ellison, Oracle CEO and co-founder. When Larry accepted his award and heard the event raised $4.5 million for cancer research he said, “OK, I’d like to match that!” In total the gala raised over $9 million dollars. Emceed by Jimmy Kimmel, the gala brought out some of Hollywood’s finest and included a special performance by Pharrell Williams and Barry Manilow. The team at CAMM and WCC look forward to this event in the coming years. Please join our fight against this horrible disease.
