Gilda Radner Charity Event

Saturday Night Live's funny woman, Gilda Radner, was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 1986. During her battle with cancer, she attended The Wellness Community. Unfortunately, Gilda lost her battle with cancer. Her husband, Gene Wilder, wanted to fulfill her wish of "No one should face cancer alone." In 1991 he created Gilda's Club. Gilda's Club Worldwide and The Wellness Community have joined together to make a difference in the lives of those who have cancer. 

The Flatiron Arts Building in Chicago held The Gilda Radner Charity Event where artists auctioned off and sold works of art and donated proceeds to the cause.
