MS Views and News, a non-profit multiple sclerosis (MS) advocacy organization, will host its second annual Champions Tackling MS Gala on April 22, with money raised going to support live educational events, community resources, and services intended to help improve the quality of life for people with MS.
The Saturday event at the Signature Grand hotel in Davie, Florida, starts at 6:30 p.m.
The evening kicks off with an open bar cocktail reception at which guests are encouraged to mingle and place bids for a silent auction. The reception will be followed by a dinner in the ballroom. After dinner and live auctions there will be an award ceremony, with the event capped by an evening of dancing to the sounds of Solid Brass.
Lauren Pastrana of CBS Miami will emcee this year’s gala. The evening’s honoree guests will be Dr. Aaron Boster, MD, a neuroimmunologost and director of the Ohio Health MS Center, and the former dentist turned fine art photographer Jon Evan Glaser, who was forced to retire from dental practice due to MS complications. Boster and Glaser’s respective advocacy and commitment to being Champions Tackling MS align with the evening’s theme.
