The Online Auction will open on Thursday, July 28 and continue until Monday, August  3, 2020. You will have the opportunity to receive text messages when you have been outbid and set a maximum bid so you don't have to keep checking back.

Watch & Donate!

Grab a seat on your couch, pour yourself a cocktail, gather your family, and tune in to our YouTube Channel on Friday, July 31, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. The short program, hosted by Jasmine Huda from KTVI Fox 2, will feature inspiring videos and messages, sponsor recognition and the presentation of the Lupus Leadership Award to Ann & Aaron Jackson. 

The highlight of the Purple Ball is our fund-a-need campaign where bidders raise their paddles to Send a Girl to Lupus Camp. This year's live YouTube program will highlight our programs and services and ask you to raise your virtual paddle by donating during the event to our camp and other vital programs. You don't have to wait to donate! You can give now to our Send a Girl to Lupus Camp...and Beyond Campaign! Just click on the Donate Now Button once you have created an account.
