2017 Global Lyme Alliance NYC Gala, NYC


Affair: 2017 Global Lyme Alliance NYC Gala

When: Wednesday, October 11, 2017 at 6:30PM

Hot Spot: Cipriani 42nd Street, NYC

Deets: Global Lyme Alliance's New York City Gala is one of the premier fundraising events in New York and is GLA's largest fundraising effort of the year. In addition to raising the funds necessary to support important Lyme disease research, the Gala also brings attention to the injustice thousands of Lyme disease patients suffer every day, due to the lack of an accurate diagnostic test, a cure, and community and physician awareness. The 2015 and 2016 NYC Galas raised more than $6 million collectively. 
We will also hear performances from two of the music world’s most prolific singer-songwriters—Grammy award-winning artist Rob Thomas and Grammy-nominated artistChris Daughtry! Also, as an extra bonus, this year's menu has been inspired by The Four Season Restaurant's new menu, courtesy of executive chef Pecko Zantilaveevan!
