Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, Co-Founder & Artistic Director of OPI Products Inc., will be the Honoree at the Delete Blood Cancer Gala on May 1st in New York City. The event will be held at Cipriani Wall Street. The award will be presented by Glenda Bailey, Editor in Chief of Harper’s Bazaar.

“I am so grateful for DKMS’s gracious acknowledgment of OPI’s efforts to help in spreading awareness,” says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann. “Blood cancer is a disease that has touched so many lives, and both OPI and COTY, Inc. have taken their roles in providing support for Delete Blood Cancer very seriously. It is so easy to make all the difference in the world—one quick cheek swab is all it takes.”

Coty, Inc. has been involved since Delete Blood Cancer’s inception over 20 years ago. OPI recently launched the “OPI Loves DKMS” campaign, to raise awareness. Delete Blood Cancer DKMS was founded in Germany in 1991 by former Coty Inc. Chairman Peter Harf, after his wife succumbed to the disease. Today, it is the largest bone marrow donor center in the world.
