Jon and Mindy Gray Throw Bash to Focus on Genes' Role in Cancer

  • Blackstone executive welcomes Ackman, Baratta, Blitzer, Chae
  • Bash funds Basser Center for BRCA the Grays founded in 2012

Jon Gray stood by his wife Mindy Tuesday night as they welcomed about a thousand guests to Cipriani Wall Street. The occasion was a fundraiser for the Basser Center for BRCA, which they founded after Mindy’s sister Faith, who carried a BRCA gene mutation, died of ovarian cancer.

"I love this extraordinary woman," said Gray, an heir apparent at Blackstone Group. "The question is, why do so many of you schlep down here on a Tuesday night in mid-November for a charity dinner?"
