The Global Lyme Alliance New York Gala 2019 raised $2.5 million, thanks to the generosity of our donors and the Lyme community. These funds will have a direct impact on GLA’s mission to conquer Lyme and other tick-borne diseases through research, education, awareness, and patient services.
Special thanks go to honorees Bob and Karen Kelly, Adrienne Nolan-Smith, and David Nolan. The event welcomed more than 700 business leaders, philanthropists, noteworthy scientists, past honorees, board members and Lyme warriors including 2015 honoree, actress, author and Lyme advocate, Yolanda Hadid, television personality and host, Dr. Oz., board member and past honoree, Erin Walker alongside PGA Tour Champion, Jimmy Walker, rising star of Netflix’s new hit series, “Family Reunion,” Talia Jackson, actor and entrepreneur, Crystal Hefner and television host, producer and author Genevieve Gorder, among many others.
