3rd Annual Gala of Hope
Over 400 people joined us for the beautiful 3rd Annual Gala of Hope on Saturday, February 23 at Vie on North Broad Street in Philadelphia. Together, we raised over $58,000 to support the MDA/ALS Center of Hope, education and research initiatives. The evening was truly a success and we are deeply grateful for the generosity of our guests and supporters. Dr. Robert Sinnott, the evening’s guest speaker, shared a very heartfelt message of hope and what it meant to him as a person battling this disease. Most importantly, Bob shared an encouraging message, “To love harder."
We are appreciative to Hank Flynn from Fox 29, our Emcee, who not only was an excellent host, but who also put a personal note on the evening in memory of his father-in law. Thank you to all of our sponsors, many of whom have been on-going supporters of the ALS Hope Foundation. Thank you to the many who donated items to the Silent Auction as your generosity truly added to the evening festivities. And of course, a huge Thank You to the staff at Vie who admirably managed a room full of 400 guests with ease and professionalism. The food was delicious, the room was gorgeous, and every one felt welcome and taken care of.
The evening brought awareness to the ALS Hope Foundation and the work of the team at the MDA/ALS Center of Hope and recognized their 20 years of dedicated care for people with ALS.
