Cancer Research Institute Event Calendar



Through the Kitchen Party 2018

Through the Kitchen is one of New York City's favorite annual events, founded 35 years ago as a benefit for the Irvington Institute for Immunological Research and now supporting the CRI Irvington Postdoctoral Fellowship Program.


Each year, the event unveils a surprise theme paying tribute to the things that make our city and our country great. Most recent themes have included “Famous Hot Spots”, “Notable New Yorkers”, “Parades of the City”, and so much more. This year's theme is “Magazines”. Since Through the Kitchen’s inception, the event has raised more than $17 million to fund promising young scientists focused on studying the immune system and its power to conquer cancer. Former fellows funded through the Cancer Research Institute’s Irvington Fellowship Program have gone on to win the Nobel Prize in Medicine and head major research centers and laboratories at top universities throughout the world. These scientists and doctors have made remarkable discoveries and have pioneered lifesaving new treatments for cancer and other diseases.

This is the only charitable event for which guests are invited to walk “through” the kitchen at the new restaurants in the Seagram Building, The Pool & The Grill. The event will take place on May 6, 2018, cocktails at 7:00 pm and dinner at 8:00 pm.
