$3.5 million was raised for Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) at its third annual Double Helix Medals Dinner The event honored Sherry Lansing for Humanitarianism, Marilyn Simons and James Simons for Corporate Leadership and James D. Watson and J. Craig Venter for Scientific Research. The black-tie gala hosted by veteran television personality Phil Donahue was held on November 6, 2008 at New York City's Mandarin Oriental Hotel.

The Double Helix Medal, inaugurated in 2006, refers to the unique structure of DNA molecule, which carries all of life's information. It is central to biological research, and is at the heart of work at CSHL.

The funds raised at the gala will fortify and expand Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory's groundbreaking research and education programs, laboratories and facilities, and further facilitate the development of innovative technologies to study genetics.
