2014 Night of Hope Gala

The 2014 Night of Hope Gala will raise more than $150,000 for the Georgia Chapter of the Lupus Foundation of America, creating awareness and hope for the 55,000 Georgians living with lupus. This inspiring celebrationheld on Saturday, November 8, 2014 at the Mason Murer Art Gallery includes fabulous food, auctions, live entertainment and a mission call.

The evening will highlight our distinguished 2014 honorees: Shea and Stephen Evans receiving the Mary Cann Achievement Award for Outstanding Volunteer Service and Gary E. Myerson, MD receiving the Excellence in Rheumatology Award.

Ninety percent of every dollar donated to the Night of Hope Gala stays in Georgia to ensure the Chapter continues to provide and expand the only valuable free educational programs, advocacy and awareness efforts. These programs include symposiums, teleconferences and support groups reaching new communities and patients across Georgia.
We also support the national research efforts funding and advocating for investment in lupus. The chapter is a lifeline and a voice of hope increasing lupus awareness.

Help us create hope by becoming a sponsor of the Night of Hope Gala!
