Honoree Philip Altheim and Vicki Modell.

Fred Modell and Wendy Siegel.
The Jeffrey Modell Foundation honored Philip Altheim and raised $1.4 million to benefit Immunology research at their “Spring Ahead '07” black tie Gala on April 26 at Cipriani 42nd Street.

Each year the Jeffrey Modell Foundation, established in 1987 by Vicki and Fred Modell in memory of their son, Jeffrey, who died at the age of 15 from complications of Primary Immunodeficiency (PI), raises funds and awareness of the disease, a genetic defect in the immune system that causes children and adults to have frequent, often hard to cure or fatal infections.  In America alone, more than 500,000 people suffer from one of the 100 known PI diseases.

Gala chairpersons were Lucy and Pat Donnelly, Madaleine Berley and Arnold Penner, and Wendy and Steve Siegel.  Journal chairpersons were Paulette and Paul Angerame and Joan and Joe Coppotelli.
