Sanford-Burnham gala nets $2.1 million for research

Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute hosted its annual gala, “On the Track to Discovery,” on Nov. 2 at the Del Mar Country Club. Under the leadership of honorary co-chairs Roberta Burnham, Pauline Foster, and Madeleine Pickens, the gala featured the merriment and inspirational spirit of the Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing, and it celebrated the lives of two Institute luminaries, board leader Duane Roth and co-founder Lillian Fishman.

The event’s lead sponsor was Life Technologies, Inc., and with support from gala patrons, $2.1 million was raised for biomedical research.
