Gala for the Arts 

On behalf of NDF's Board of Directors and GNEM Patients everywhere, we would like to thank everyone who participated in NDF's most successful Gala to date! This of course includes our Gala Co-Chairs, Sogol Ashourpour and Desiree Pakravan, as well as the artists, musicians, and honorees who filled our night with joy and beauty. With over 450 attendees, and many viewers through our live-stream, we were able to raise just over $1 million on Sunday, November 11th 2018, towards our goal, making for a total of $1.7 million raised so far all year through grants, sponsorships, donations, and pledges. This means we are only $800k away from our goal of $2.5 million as set by the terms of our matching grant from an established charitable foundation that wishes to remain anonymous.

We could not have achieved these astonishing milestone without the commitment and dedication of our supporters both large and small.

Please help us reach our goal by donating here
