On September 27, 2007, Anthony Dolce, Stuart Koshner and Roger Chartouni, managing partners of RC Dolner LLC, a major New York-based construction company, hosted a gala dinner to benefit the University of Michigan Linda Dolce Scleroderma Research Fund.  The dinner was held at the elegant Columbus Citizens Foundation Townhouse in New York City.  The event welcomed over 90 guests and raised over $210,000 for scleroderma research at the University of Michigan.

The Linda Dolce Scleroderma Research Fund is named in honor of Anthony Dolce’s late wife.  The purpose of the fund is to advance the understanding of scleroderma disease mechanisms and develop new interventions and treatments that may one day lead to a cure for scleroderma.

After a fabulous dinner and dessert in one of the elegant dining rooms of the Townhouse, Dr. James R. Seibold, Director of the University of Michigan Scleroderma Program, commented on Anthony Dolce’s tremendous support of scleroderma research and presented him with a certificate of appreciation for his passion and leadership. 

Dr. Seibold also acknowledged the remarkable program support of Anthony’s business partners Roger Chartouni and Stuart Koshner, as well as business associates, family and friends, including long-time supporters Bruce and Meryl Raiffe of New Jersey. 

The Raiffe family and friends

Thanks to all of the benefit dinner sponsors and benefactors, the event was an incredible success.  Without this continuing type of support, advances made possible through cutting-edge research could not be achieved.
