Gateway to OZ for Cancer Research

Mandell Entertainment produced the 2017 Gateway to Cancer. All guests had to do was click their heels three times to be transported and immersed in the wonderful world of OZ. Guests were treated to a fantastical evening, from a re-created production of the Wizard of OZ, to a spectacular auction, a magical culinary experience, and Emerald City worthy entertainment, including Earth Wind and Fire, Pia Toscano, Matteo Bocelli, Billy Gilman, Laura Breton and Letitia Frye; America’s foremost auctioneer.
