Ferrari-Maserati of Fort Lauderdale is set to host this year’s Fourth Annual Gala of Hope to Cure Spinal Muscular Atrophy. The Gala of Hope to Cure Spinal Muscular Atrophy is an annual campaign that benefits the Families of SMA’s mission to find a cure for the leading genetic cause of death of children under the age of two. The disease destroys the nerves that control voluntary movements and decreases the ability to walk, swallow, and control the movements of the head and neck. Fiorenna Israel-Fuentes and Jennifer Miller-Smith, two mothers with daughters suffering from SMA, founded the Gala of Hope to honor their daughters’ fight for survival. The outstanding work of Families of SMA has contributed to major discoveries that include the identification of the underlying cause of SMA.
The Fourth Annual Gala of Hope will take place on Thursday, October 2, 2014 at 7p.m. at the Ferrari-Maserati of Fort Lauderdale, located at 5750 N. Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale, FL. This wonderful event will include a luxurious evening that will feature a live 6-piece band, a 360 degree open bar, Stoli Doli Martinis compliments of The Capital Grille, cocktails from Heaven Hill Distillery and Premium Beverage, an outside hookah lounge with live entertainment, and a raffle for the chance to win a $5,000 shopping spree to JR Dunn. Tickets will be $150 per person with all proceeds going to Families of SMA.
