22. September 2018

Our great summer effort to produce a winner finally bore fruit.  We had our AGBC sponsored cancer walk on Saturday, 22 September, which had a beautiful morning and beautiful afternoon.  We had a total of 50 people registered and the Marriott provided great service for us all day long.  They provided a large conference room for us to hear Professor Dr. Peter Lichter of DKFZ who briefed us on the current successes in combatting cancer.  It was a fascinating presentation and generated many questions afterwards. Prof. Lichter got a lot of applause; and it was a very successful presentation.  

Next event was a cruise on the Neckar and Professor Lichter stayed with us for the cruise and our terrace reception which followed.  Halfway through the terrace reception the clouds rolled in and it started to sprinkle a little bit. So the Marriott (with its very professional staff) moved everyone into the hotel and continued the reception from there.  

The press attended, and we had a very laudatory and comprehensive report written in the local newspaper, along with a beautiful big color photograph of me presenting Prof Dr. Lichter a check for $100,000.  That was our minimum guarantee to ensure that the DKFZ was an active participant in our day's activities. We finished off this great evening in the Marriott's restaurant.  The last attendees didn't leave until midnight (in taxis).
