Cancer fundraiser planners happy to have Bill Cosby on board

So how do you get someone like Bill Cosby to headline your charity fundraiser?

“We asked him!” said Julie McMullen, who along with her husband, Mike, co-hosted Teal Ribbon Comedy, An Evening with Bill Cosby to benefit ovarian cancer research at Magee-Womens Research Institute. “He could have said no, but he didn't. To have him here is an amazing thing.”

Also amazing was hearing Julie's personal story as an ovarian cancer survivor, and her determination to raise $1 million to support research initiatives at MWRI and the Magee-Womens Gynecologic Oncology Division.

A VIP reception saw the likes of her physician, Dr. Thomas Krivak, Arthur Scully, Dawn and Mike Gunning, Maris Bondi, Dr. Yoel and Elena Sadovsky, and emcee and WDVE Morning Show host Randy Baumann (also proving to be a star attraction) floating by.

As far as Mr. Cosby was concerned, no mixing and mingling with guests for the world-famous comedian, although his show turned out to be a near sellout.
