Scripps Spinoff Raises $1.6 Million Plus



May 5th, 2011 the 20th Annual Scripps Spinoff was held at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla..... and it was spectacular as over $1.6 million was raised to benefit clinical research, early detection, education and patient support services at Scripps Cancer Center, Stevens Division in La Jolla.

Themed 'Wonders of the World,' the $1.6 million will create wonders of health care for many in need.

Dr. John Trombold, Abeer Hage, Skeets and Sharon Dunn, Karen Fine, and Dr. James Sinclair

Details.....John Trombold, MD, founder and former medical director, Scripps Cancer Center, Stevens Division; event co-chair Abeer Hage; honored guests Skeets and Sharon Dunn; event co-chair Karen Fine; James Sinclair, MD, medical director, Scripps Cancer Center, Stevens Division, celebrate a record-breaking year, raising more than $1.6 million to support lifesaving cancer care at the 20th Anniversary Spinoff: Auction for Life, Wonders of the World.


"More than 400 guests bid on Wonders of the World inspired items during the silent and live auction events, including a week-stay at the exclusive Principe Forte dei Marmi in Lucca, Italy; eight-night adventure in India staying at four of the luxurious Oberoi Hotels & Resorts; and Boston Red Sox and Fenway Fantasy Trip. A special fund-an-item auction also supported a new endowment for patient support services in honor of founding medical director John S. Trombold, MD.

The global affair was co-chaired by Karen Fine and Abeer Hage, featuring dancing and decor from around the world. Polenez dancers welcomed guests as they arrived, Palestinian Zaytouna Dabke dancers entertained during the silent auction, and a Chinese Lion processional brought guests into the ballroom that featured Taiwanese American Naruwan Taiko drumming.

This unforgettable evening commemorated two decades of support for lifesaving care at Scripps Cancer Center. In 1980, John S. Trombold, MD, helped launch the first Spinoff event for Scripps Cancer Center, Stevens Division, as a tennis tournament at the San Diego Tennis and Racquet Club, adding an auction to the event in 1991. Today, although no longer a tennis tournament, Spinoff continues as an auction to benefit lifesaving cancer care, paying homage to its tennis roots, as appropriately named 'Spinoff: Auction for Life.'"
