Celebrating its 23rd year, the UCLA Jonsson Cancer Center Foundation’s signature event, Taste for a Cure will be held on Friday, April 27 at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. During this special evening, Paul Telegdy will be honored with the 2018 Gil Nickel Humanitarian Award.

This year’s event will feature an Italian theme of superb wines from renowned wineries, and signature dishes from some of Los Angeles’ top Italian chefs and restaurants, while raising valuable funds for leading-edge cancer research at the UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center (JCCC).
