On March 23, 2019, The Sumaira Foundation for NMO hosted its 4th annual NMO Awareness Gala at the Mandarin Oriental, Boston
Thank you to our 250 guests & the entire community who transformed our magic enchanted forest into a reality, making this our biggest and most successful gala yet!
We raised almost $60,000.00 that we plan to give back to the community by way of TSF’s SPARK Grants and Joannie’s Unicorn Grant
ANNOUNCING JOANNIE’S UNICORN GRANT
This year’s Gala was the perfect moment to share the launch of Joannie’s Unicorn Grant! Our newest TSF grant was created to fund pediatric NMO research in honor of Joannie Rios, a 6 year-old from Rochester, NY who lost her battle to NMO this past February.
