Young Friends Fund Young Faculty

Chef Daniel Stern has helped lead the revolution in Philadelphia’s restaurant scene as chef at some of the city’s premier restaurants — Le Bec Fin, Gayle, Rae, R2L and Mid-Atlantic.

Together with wife, Jennifer, co-chairs Robert Blumenthal, Jonathan Feinberg, David Goldstein, Maria Papadakis, and honorary co-chairs, Judy Abramson Felgoise, Marcy A. Shoemaker, and Nancy A. Wolfson, Stern is now leading the charge to support young faculty members at Penn’s Abramson Cancer Center.

The Young Friends of the Abramson Cancer Center supports young faculty members and researchers with funds and resources to help them develop the next generation of cancer therapies, treatments and preventive measures.

Through philanthropy and fundraising events, the group supports clinicians and scientists whose research is often underfunded.

“The Young Friends bring a different perspective to cancer philanthropy,” says Stern. “Cancer affects so many families, and it’s a cause that is very meaningful to me and my family.”

Group members encompass a wide range of ages and interests – from recent college graduates, to men and women with careers in business, real estate and design. Every member of the group has a personal desire to eradicate cancer and improve the lives of those afflicted with the disease.
