Lupus Foundation of America’s National Gala

Evening of Hope

The Lupus Foundation of America’s National Gala is an Evening of Hope honoring outstanding individuals who have been champions for those living with lupus and their families. The National Gala raises critically needed funds to support the Foundation’s mission and its comprehensive programs to fight lupus, and end its brutal impact on individuals and families.

In years past, the Foundation has had the privilege of honoring the late Senator Ted Kennedy, Saks Fifth Avenue Chairman and CEO Steve Sadove, Today Show Co-host Natalie Morales, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, Whoopi Goldberg, Ted Turner, Sheila C. Johnson, co-founder of Black Entertainment Television (BET) and owner of the Washington Mystics, and other leading national corporations, foundations, and individuals. Guests have enjoyed the talents of Julian Lennon, Jennifer Hudson, Oleta Adams, Patti LaBelle, Robin Thicke, and other entertainers.
