Recap: National Multiple Sclerosis Society Great Gatsby Gala

Recap: National Multiple Sclerosis Society Great Gatsby Gala

Saturday night our team rolled it back to the 1920’s and dressed in our Gatsby best for the 31st annual National MS Society’s Great Gatsby Gala, its main fundraiser to help those living with multiple sclerosis.

As you may know, The Home T donates 10% of profits to multiple sclerosis research, and we have raised over $350,000 to date in doing so (!!!), but once again this year we were the presenting sponsor for this awesome Gatsby Gala fundraiser for the National MS Society. Last year the event raised over $200,000 in one night, and while this year’s totals are still being calculated we are hoping it has that amount beat.

The event was full of swing dancing, amazing food, and auctioning off some great prizes donated to help raise money for the cause. We got to hear some great speeches about the progress made towards finding a cure for this nasty disease, and even hear from someone that is kicking some MS booty by walking 500 miles in Europe after being in a wheelchair from the disease earlier in her life. It is estimated that over 1 million adults in the United States are living with MS, and it was cool to hear stories like this one from survivors that are not letting the disease write their story.

So while we danced the night away, it was awesome to know that the money raised on Saturday will go a long way towards one day finding a cure for multiple sclerosis. We were able to add a few more drops in the bucket, and eventually the bucket will overflow. We already can’t wait for next year’s event, and maybe we’ll finally convince Ryan to show us all his dance moves he talks about.
