Join us for the 2022 Toast to Your Health Wine Auction. This elegant and fun-filled evening will benefit the Wilmot Cancer Institute at the University of Rochester Medical Center, and features notable wines from around the world, gourmet cuisine, and an exhilarating live auction.
Out of an abundance of caution given the current COVID-19 situation, and care for the community and each other, this event will now be held in the fall of 2022. A new date, time, and location will be forthcoming.
Thank you for your flexibility and your continued support of the University of Rochester Medical Center and the Wilmot Cancer Institute.
University of Rochester Advancement is committed to providing a safe and enjoyable event experience for all guests. Please visit uofr.us/events for the latest COVID-19 health and safety requirements.
At 22, Emily Robbins was a new college grad who had started her first job and was training to run another marathon. Her life was upended when she was diagnosed with leukemia and had to undergo more than two years of treatment. “It’s because of the care I got from doctors and nurses at Wilmot: that’s why I’m here to tell my story,” says Emily. “Without cancer research, I wouldn’t be here today.”
“We have to start by identifying those with greater needs or who have faced a disproportionate cancer burden for decades,” says Paula Cupertino, PhD. As associate director of Wilmot’s new Office of Community Outreach and Engagement, Cupertino is working with the community to identify research gaps and open clinical trials that will reduce cancer incidence in our region.
