Baldwin Gala

To benefit the Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund of CNY and support grants awarded to Upstate Medical University's Breast Cancer Research Program.


This unique evening will begin with cocktails, hors d’oeurves & dinner stations followed by a silent auction, live auction, photo booth, and dedication to honorees and families.

The Baldwin Fund has been a generous Upstate benefactor — all its fundraising goes to support research on our campus. Since 2002, the Baldwin Fund has provided over $3 million in grants for breast cancer research to Upstate Medical University.
