Hepatitis B Gala 2021
Join us on Friday, April 30th as we look back over the past 30 years of the Hepatitis B Foundation. This live, virtual event will feature the presentation of the prestigious Baruch S. Blumberg Award to Dr. Wenhui Li in recognition of his outstanding contributions to hepatitis B research. The Milestone Achievement Award will be presented to the Carol and Edmund Blake Foundation for their outstanding contributions to the Hepatitis B Foundation. The Community Commitment Award will be given to Nadine Shiroma for her ongoing dedication to social justice, ending disparities, and addressing discrimination among people impacted by hepatitis B.
Join us for a cheese pairing at 6:30pm
Do you fancy yourself a freak of fromage? A gruyere groupie or brie believer? Are you loony for limburger? Join us for a glorious, guided tasting with the expert cheese mongers from Di Bruno Brothers! In lieu of a "cocktail hour" before the event begins, we offer you a private tour of cheeses and appropriate pairings. As James Beard has said, "Good cheese needs good companions", and I hope you'll be our companion for this unique experience. Proceeds benefit the Hepatitis B Foundation.
