(May 21, 2019) Last night, supporters in NYC packed Carolines on Broadway for Stand Up for Madeline & OCRA, our much-anticipated evening of laughter to end ovarian cancer. Thank you to all who attended this fun night.

After guests enjoyed cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and a raucous live auction with the hilarious Judy Gold as auctioneer, stand-up legends Mike Birbiglia, Ronny Chieng, Ryan Donahue, Pedro Gonzalez, Robert Klein and Chris Redd brought down the house, lending their time and talent to raise money for the cause.

Proceeds benefit OCRA’s ovarian cancer research and support programs in memory of the great comedic actress Madeline Kahn.

Our sincere thanks to John Hansbury, Michelle Gerson, Caroline Hirsch, and all who helped Stand Up for Madeline and OCRA raise money that will save women’s lives. We hope to see you next year!
