About the Love, Hope & Strength Fundraiser
The Love, Hope & Strength Fundraiser is organized to find a cure for Spinal Muscular Atrophy - the #1 genetic killer of young children and a disease that affects hundreds of families in North Carolina. This is the largest event in the Triangle dedicated to finding a cure or treatment for SMA! Please join us for an evening of fine art, cocktails, live entertainment, a silent auction and hope as we rally to fund a cure for SMA.
We are thrilled to announce five-time Emmy Award winner, Debra Morgan of WRAL News, as the emcee for the Love, Hope & Strength Fundraiser.
