t.j. martell foundation's artworks for the cure
the 2013 Artworks for the Cure event, at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, raised more than one million dollars for funding cutting-edge leukemia, cancer and AIDS research—the largest event in the history of the West Coast office of the T.J. Martell Foundation. The three-day event featured the Spirit of Excellence Award dinner, honoring Troy Carter, Lady Gaga’s manager and the founder of Atom Factory; Catherine An, An Catering and Tiato Restaurant; Daniel Ek, founder of Spotify; and Rob Wells, President/Global Digital Business for Universal Music Group. Colbie Caillat performed several of her hit songs on Saturday evening. “Artworks for the Cure brought together a fantastic group of people including honorees, artists, patrons, celebrities and volunteers to help raise funds for our important research programs,” said T.J. Martell Foundation CEO Laura Heatherly. Sponsors for Artworks for the Cure included American Airlines, Universal Music Group, Accenture, Code Advisors, Live Nation, Mediacom, Microsoft, Spinlet, the Wasserman Foundation and many more.
