The Greenwich Gala is a signature event for GLA and plays a key role in GLA’s overall fundraising efforts to conquer Lyme and other tick-borne diseases.
This special evening also acknowledges a Lyme disease researcher who has made a significant impact in our fight. The 2016 and 2017 Greenwich Galas raised nearly $2 million collectively.

Join co-hosts Ali Moresco and Sarah Aiken in Chicago, Illinois for the first ever live taping of In The Lymelight. In The Lymelight is a podcast about living with Lyme disease (and everything in between) and aims to bring humor and knowledge to an otherwise somber topic with comedic relief.
In the Lymelight and Global Lyme Alliance welcome famed comedian and hypnotist Chris Jones to the stage in Chicago. A Chicago native and previous Zanies performer, Chris took the entertainment world by storm after he hypnotized notorious germaphobe Howie Mandel into shaking hands on America’s Got Talent, and continues to wow with appearances on Windy City Live, NBC and Steve Harvey. Jones will be discussing his career and using comedy to overcome depression.
If you enjoy comedy and want to support GLA–this show is not to be missed. A portion of proceeds from In The Lymelight featuring Chris Jones will be donated to GLA.
Date: November 30 Where: Zanies, Old Town: 1548 N Wells St, Chicago, IL 60610 Admission: $20.00
