11th Annual Endometriosis Foundation of America Blossom Ball

March 20, 2023 @ 6:30 PM - 10:30 PM


The Endometriosis Foundation of America (EndoFound) 11th Annual Blossom Ball would honor EndoFound ambassadors Olivia Culpo and Corinne Foxx with the Blossom Award and Michael J. Dowling, President and CEO of Northwell Health with the Industry Award on Monday, March 20, at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City. Co-hosts are actress/musician Fọlákẹ́ Olówófôyekù (CBS’ Bob Hearts Abishola) and journalist Alicia Vitarelli (6 ABC Action News in Philadelphia). Hannah Elless, who recently starred in Nora Ephron Goes to Prison, will give a special musical performance. The presenting sponsor is Northwell Health.

The Blossom Ball is the signature fundraiser for EndoFound, co-founded by Padma Lakshmi, an Emmy-nominated food expert, television host, producer, and best-selling New York Times author, and her doctor, Tamer Seckin, MD, one of a limited number of accredited gynecologic surgeons in the United States who has advanced training for the deep excision of endometriosis, who has authored several books and speaks internationally on the treatment of the disease.

A night to celebrate all those who have worked so hard for the endometriosis cause, the Blossom Ball is an elegant and fun evening to raise money so EndoFound can continue its important advocacy work, outreach, and education programs, and fund landmark research that gets us each year closer to a cure. Endometriosis affects an estimated 200 million women worldwide and approximately one in 10 women in the U.S. There is currently no known cause or cure for the disease, which can be a debilitating and disruptive burden to those affected and those around them. This year, the Blossom Ball will honor the endometriosis patients, their families, friends, and communities who rally around them.

This year’s red carpet fundraising event, co-chaired by Farah Moinian and Madeleine K. Rudin, is a black-tie evening and will include a cocktail reception followed by a seated dinner, musical performance, live auction with professional auctioneer Harry Santa-Olalla, and after-party with dancing.

Tickets for dinner start at $750 and tables begin at $12,500. To reserve tables, make a tax-deductible donation to the EndoFound, or to get more information on the event please visit www.endofound.org/blossomball.
