The 35th annual MS Dinner Auction, hosted by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, will transport guests to a spy-themed “Mission Possible” event to support cutting-edge research to stop disease progression and provide programs and services that assist those living with MS to live their best lives.
The black-tie-optional event raised more than $400,000 in 2019 and the team hopes to keep the momentum moving after a new study funded by the National MS Society shows more than twice as many people in the U.S. are living with multiple sclerosis than previously thought. Earlier studies estimated the prevalence to be 400,000, but this new study revealed there are nearly 1 million Americans living with MS. Packages including exclusive golf experiences, fine San Diego dining, hotel staycations, one-of-a-kind experiences, and more will be open for bidding. This year’s Hope Award will go to Howard’s Team, led by Jay McCabe and Bob Moore, who will be celebrating $2 million raised for the National MS Society through their support of Bike MS and Walk MS. Additionally, the event will thank Ron Cohn for funding a National MS Society fellow dedicated to research.
