On September 27, 2016, Revlon held its annual philanthropic luncheon in support of the Revlon Women’s Health Mission at the Chateau Marmont Hotel in Hollywood. The celebrity-attended event honored Dr. Dennis J. Slamon (FEL ’82) for his outstanding achievements in cancer research.

Dr. Slamon serves as director of the Revlon/UCLA Women’s Cancer Research Program and director of Clinical/Translational Research at the UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center. He is professor of medicine, chief of the Division of Hematology-Oncology, executive vice chair for research for UCLA’s Department of Medicine and the Bowyer Professor of Medical Oncology in the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.

Revlon Chairman Ronald O. Perelman and Revlon CEO and President Fabian Garcia presented Dr. Slamon with a $1-million contribution for the Revlon/UCLA Women’s Cancer Research Program to advance its groundbreaking efforts toward eradicating cancer.
