7th Annual Expect Miracles in Manhattan

March 22, 2022 | Ziegfeld Ballroom | New York, NY


After two long years, Expect Miracles Foundation was delighted to reunite with its supporters, both old and new, to celebrate a brighter season of hope for the cancer community. One of the Foundation’s signature events, the Expect Miracles in Manhattan celebration is always a highlight—this year in particular, supporters from the financial services industry and beyond returned with a renewed fervor for fun and philanthropy, enjoying a lively night of cocktails, food, networking and more.  

With an enthusiastic crowd of over 500 guests representing over 100 firms, Columbia Threadneedle Investments was presented with the Foundation Award for its impactful leadership and support of Expect Miracles Foundation. Allison Saloy of Neuberger Berman was awarded the Judy Award in recognition of her selfless volunteering during the Expect Miracles Peloton Corporate Showdown. John “Primo” Pavese of New York Life Investments was presented with the Lonnie Award for his humble commitment to advance the Foundation’s mission. And Margaret Flynn-Martin of Morgan Stanley Wealth Management was awarded the Expect Miracles Award in recognition of her outstanding impact on the cancer community. 

One of the major highlights of the night included a speech from a young adult breast cancer survivor and aspiring actress who struggled to make ends meet, but then received a Samfund grant from Expect Miracles Foundation to help her pay for rent and groceries. Bianca credits Expect Miracles Foundation with her financial recovery and her ability to continue pursuing her dreams of becoming an actress.



The evening ended with members of the Foundation’s Board of Directors presenting a check for $300,000 to Daniel Heller, PhD from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center for his lab’s work to improve the early detection of cancers and use of nanomedicine in treating metastatic cancers. 

An enormous thank you to everyone that made the Expect Miracles in Manhattan event such a success and for helping people like Bianca recover financially after cancer. Your support of the Foundation’s mission is life-changing.
