Music, Film and Entertainment Industries Taste of Hope

In a philanthropic effort that strikes just the right note on the wine connoisseur’s palate, members of the Music, Film & Entertainment Industry gather in New York each year for the Taste of Hope.  Attendees savor an exclusive dinner and support City of Hope through a live and silent auction featuring a selection of distinguished vintages from some the world’s finest private collections.  In its 11 year history, the event has raised more than $115 million.  The event is presented by Mediabase and chaired by Alissa Pollack (EVP, Global Music Marketing, iHeartMedia).

Each year, 100 million lives are touched by the discoveries made at City of Hope.  They are a world leader in collaborations with other cancer centers for clinical trials and research programs around the world.  

A portion of the funds raised at the 12th annual Taste of Hope will go to the Jason Pollack Memorial Fund at Musicians on Call, a program that supports music programming for patients and their families at City of Hope.
