On April 26, 2012, the Skin Cancer Foundation hosted their third “A Night the Stars Shine On” event at Ristorante Barolo. The weather may have been cold and rainy, but some of New York City’s finest warmed up with gourmet hors d’oeuvres and dinner, slurp-able cocktails and beats by Jarrell Entertainment.

More than a night of great food and entertainment, the event was a chance  to socialize and celebrate the possibilities of future skin cancer prevention. Actor, entertainment reporter and skin cancer survivor Jerry Penacoli delivered a touching speech about surviving skin cancer — and implored attendees to get involved with the cause. Gift Bags were passed out featuring skin care products sponsored by companies such as L’Oreal, Clarins and Mary Kay.
