Night of Hope Gala has raised over $6.3 million dollars to fund critical research for ALS.
Over the past eleven years, the Night of Hope Gala has raised over $6.3 million dollars to fund critical research for ALS. Each year, the gala committee enlists the help of corporate sponsors and individual donors to assist in the major undertaking of bringing awareness to this tragic illness and to fund various research initiatives.
On October 14, 2016 at 6:30pm, the 11th Annual Night of Hope Gala will take place at the InterContinental Hotel Buckhead in Atlanta, GA. This premier, black tie event has become one of the largest in the southeast and will gather over 600 corporate and professional leaders to celebrate and support ALS research. The evening features cocktails, a seated dinner with live entertainment by the Craig Duncan Orchestra and a silent and live auction.
The funds raised at the event are earmarked by the ALS Division of MDA, which leads the worldwide search for treatments and a cure for ALS. MDA maintains 42 MDA/ALS Centers across the country including the ALS Center at Emory University. In 2008 Emory University was named one of five MDA National Clinical Research Centers.
