On Thursday, June 5th at Mickey Mantle’s restaurant, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center will be honoring this year’s Award of Courage to one of football’s greats, Y.A. Tittle, an outstanding athlete who has been an inspiration on and off the field. The Award of Courage was designed to honor the strength of body and spirit that is so valuable in winning the fight against cancer. This event was created ten years ago as the result of one patient’s experience with cancer. In their desire to help others conquer and survive this disease, cancer survivor Dave Gorin and his wife Monica have dedicated themselves to raising funds to support the Department of Surgery at Memorial Sloan-Kettering and funding the Gorin Fellowship - a one-year oncology fellowship. Open to the public, the Award of Courage Presentation Dinner and Auction is on Thursday June 5th at 6PM at Mickey Mantle’s restaurant, located at 42 Central Park South.
