LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA (PRWEB) May 24, 2006
CyberDefender(tm) Corporation, the security developer with the industry’s most advanced early defense technology today announced that its Chief executive Officer Gary Guseinov attended the Thirteenth Annual Race to Erase MS entitled Disco Fever to Erase MS benefiting The Nancy Davis Foundation for Multiple Sclerosis on May 12th, 2006 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza. The gala evening featured a dazzling live and silent auction, gourmet dinner, and live performances by Kool & The Gang, Sister Sledge and Natalie Cole, among others.
Co-Chairs Nancy Davis and Tommy Hilfiger welcomed celebrity friends and supporters to the gala. The evening benefited The Nancy Davis Foundation for Multiple Sclerosis and was sponsored by Tommy Hilfiger Corporation, American Airlines, Serono and Hyatt Regency Century Plaza.
"I believe it is very important to stand behind such social causes as it allows us as human beings to understand the pain others may be experiencing, and to help find a solution for people who may not have the means," said Guseinov.
Tom Arnold, Tony Danza, and Bill Maher returned as celebrity auctioneers at exciting live auction which featured an extraordinary list of unique luxury and entertainment items including a dance lesson with "Dancing with the Stars" champion Drew Lachey and his partner Cheryl Burke, a Yorkie puppy to take home and the chance to attend and cover an event with Tom Arnold for his hit show "Best Damn Sports Show Period" among other items to be announced.
The event was highlighted by an exclusive celebrity fashion show featuring one-of-a-kind disco inspired designs by Tommy Hilfiger. The event was produced by Suzanne de Passe, with David Foster as the musical director. Last year's event raised $2.7 million for The Nancy Davis Foundation for Multiple Sclerosis, which was founded by Davis in 1993.
This year Nancy Davis will also further her mission to eradicate MS, spread awareness and help others battling their diagnosis with the release of her first book LEAN ON ME: 10 Powerful Steps to Moving Beyond Your Diagnosis and Taking Back Your Life (Fireside/Simon & Schuster, Inc; April 2006). The book is a powerful tool to help guide anyone who has been given a life threatening diagnosis to making good choices, finding the right healthcare and taking back their life. It is not just the story of Nancy’s personal diagnosis, but a "how to" guide where she imparts her hard earned wisdom to others to help them face their disease and move on with their life. All guests of the Race to Erase MS received a copy of the book.
A seasoned marketing veteran in the software industry, Guseinov co-founded the company known today as CyberDefender Corporation with Chief Information Officer Igor Barash in 2003 when they began publishing a series of software utilities. In early 2005, the team acquired its own proprietary technology with the purchase of CyberDefender.
The Nancy Davis Foundation for Multiple Sclerosis is dedicated to the treatment and ultimate cure for MS. Funding research is the core focus of the Foundation and significant strides have been made to find the cause and cure of this devastating disease. All funds raised through The Race to Erase MS event support "The Nancy Davis Center Without Walls" program, a selected network of the nation’s top seven MS research centers representing UC San Francisco, Brigham & Women’s Harvard Hospital, Yale, The Cleveland Clinic, Oregon Health Science University, Johns Hopkins and University of Southern California. This nationwide collaboration of physicians, scientists and clinicians are on the cutting-edge of innovative research programs and therapeutic approaches to eradicate MS. It is the hope of the Foundation that in addition to combating MS through research in a clinical environment, an increased awareness will be created by educating the public about this mystifying disease.
