An interdepartmental team of Convaid | R82 volunteers will work alongside the Cure SMA team on Saturday, May 6, 2017 for the organization’s annual fundraiser, Gala of Hope, to be held at the Ritz-Carlton in Laguna Niguel, CA. For anyone wishing to support this event, tickets will remain available online through Wednesday, May 3rd.
The goal of the event is to help fund research to find a cure for Spinal Muscular Atrophy, the number one genetic cause of death in infants under the age of 2.
Team Convaid | R82 will assist with the raffle and matters related to publicity and promotion. The will entail a night of luxury as the gala features cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, three-course dinner, silent and live auction, a well-stocked raffle, California-style entertainment and the opportunity to meet with some local Southern Californian icons.
Last year, Convaid |R82 presented a Convaid Trekker to a family designated by the organization as part of a planned giving program and participated at the Cure SMA National Conference as a Platinum Exhibitor that kicked-off an expanded community alliance between Convaid | R82 and Cure SMA that includes participation at Cure SMA Walk-n-Rolls throughout the United States, such as the one Convaid | R82 attended earlier in the month in Costa Mesa, CA and attended multiple events throughout North America,including a walk and roll in Northern California and bowl-a-thon in North Texas.
