Gala 2006 Raises $2.8 Million for the Fight Against Lupus

This year's S.L.E. Lupus Foundation "Life Without Lupus" Gala raised more than $2.8 million—a national record for funds collected at a single event to nurture research, support education, and provide services for people with lupus, a chronic and often debilitating autoimmune disease.

More than 750 supporters attended the December 4th gala at the Marriott Marquis in New York's Times Square, which honored James D. Robinson III, chairman of the board of Bristol-Myers Squibb, and featured appearances by Bob Costas and Broadway legend Barbara Cook. Read more about Gala 2006 »
