The 2020 Virtual Gala was a Massive Success!

THANK YOU! We simply cannot express the strength of our gratitude for everyone who participated in the Myotonic Dystrophy Foundation (MDF) 2020 Virtual Gala! We are truly blown away by the incredible outpouring of generosity and support.

We are thrilled to announce that our biggest fundraising event of the year has raised over $880,000 to help fund critical programs and services for individuals and families living with myotonic dystrophy! A special thank you to all of our Gala Donors and Sponsors who have helped advance our mission and bring us one step closer to making our dreams come true! We would also like to acknowledge two community members who called on their friends and family to organize their own grassroots Gala campaigns: Emily Jones and Stefano Brancato!

We would like to extend a huge thank you to our incredible Co-Chairs of the MDF 2020 Virtual Gala: Martha Montag Brown, Erica Kelly & Leslie Lynch! With the assistance of our Gala Coordinator, Kate Beck, these passionate women were able to organize and execute one of our most successful fundraising events in the history of MDF – and all during the COVID-19 pandemic!

We hope you had an unforgettable evening and thank you for bringing us one step closer to making our dreams come true: finding a cure for myotonic dystrophy.
