Mitchell Kaneff, president, Arkay Packaging, recently presented Leonard Lauder with a $140k doantion for the Alzheimer's Drug Discovery Foundation.

The money was raised at the Kaneff Foundation's 1st Annual Music Cures Benefit, which was held on July 25th, 2013, at the Cutting Room in New York City. Kaneff's band, The Young Presidents, which includes Jake Hertzog, headlined the event and performed songs from their latest album.

Also at the show, James Keach, producer of the Oscar winning "Walk the Line," presented a clip from his forthcoming documentary on Glenn Campbell, who recently announced his battle with Alzheimer's. Campbell's children, Ashley and Shannon Campbell, opened the evening with their band Victoria Ghost.

The Young Presidents (which is probably the first-ever rock band to include a beauty packaging supplier!) will be performing next on October 11th at the CBGB Music Festival in New York City.
