Breaking Through Lupus Gala 2018
Breaking Through Lupus Gala 2018

The Lupus Research Alliance celebrates our annual Breaking through Lupus Gala on November 19, 2018 at the Ziegfeld Ballroom – an iconic landmark mingling up-to-the-moment elegance with the art-deco grandeur of 1920’s movie palaces.

This year we are proud to honor William J. Wolfe, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of First Washington Realty, Inc.  A leader in lupus research and highly active member of our Board, Bill ardently supports the Lupus Research Alliance on behalf of his daughter, who has courageously battled the disease for many years.

Willie Geist, Host of Sunday TODAY and Co-Host of Morning Joe, will share his warmth and humor as our emcee, and Broadway Star and Tony Award Nominee Norm Lewis will perform Broadway classics.  Indicative of the event’s stature as the largest single lupus fundraiser in the world, our honorary co-chairs are none other than The Honorable Michael R. Bloomberg, Lady Gaga and Selena Gomez.

The not-to-miss annual event has been a red-circled night on NYC’s social calendar for decades.  It draws over 700 members of the nation’s lupus community and raises millions, with every dollar going directly to fund lupus research programs.
