The Forum in Inglewood had not officially reopened on Monday evening, January 13. Yet, the iconic venue has already helped raise millions of dollars to fight pancreatic cancer. The Forum in Inglewood hosted “A Night At The Forum” to benefit The Lustgarten Foundation, the nation’s largest nonprofit funder of pancreatic cancer research.
It was the Inaugural West Coast fundraising gala for the Lustgarten Foundation, marking the first event held at the reinvented “Fabulous” Forum.
The sold-out gala fundraiser raised more than $12.5 million. This included nearly $2.5 million that will go directly to supporting The Lustgarten Foundation’s efforts to detect the disease earlier, develop better treatments, and ultimately, find a cure.
Stand Up To Cancer also announced that one of its funding partners would commit an additional $10 million to help support the ongoing fight to beat this lethal disease. And because Cablevision Systems Corporation, The Madison Square Garden Company and AMC Networks agreed to underwrite the event, all proceeds raised from ‘A Night at The Forum’ are going directly to pancreatic cancer research.
