570x50_AboutTFAC

2022 marked the 25th anniversary of the UCLA Jonsson Cancer Center Foundation’s signature event, Taste for a Cure. We presented our Gil Nickel Humanitarian Award to Michael Thorn, President of Entertainment, Fox Entertainment, and to Rob Wade, President of Alternative Entertainment, Fox Entertainment.

Many thanks to our incredible hosts Rob Lowe and Ken Jeong, and our musical guest Robin Thicke, who had the crowd up and dancing!

Taste for a Cure unites the entertainment and epicurean communities and consistently ranks among the top ten culinary events in Southern California. Every year, we look forward to sharing this special evening, all while raising valuable funds for leading-edge cancer research at the UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center (JCCC).
