The inaugural Hope Rising Benefit is the largest event of its kind ever hosted by AFTD, targeting increased awareness of FTD and support needed to accelerate AFTD’s mission.
Those gathered on 9/29 will play a vital role in advancing: collaborative research; increased awareness; vital support for those directly impacted; education for healthcare professionals; and advocacy for appropriate, affordable services.
Three members of the AFTD community, Donald Newhouse, AFTD Board member Kathy Newhouse Mele, and Daniel Hedaya, will host the event.
The evening will celebrate one of AFTD’s most generous supporters, David Zaslav, President and CEO of Discovery Communications, who will be honored with the Susan Newhouse & Si Newhouse Award of Hope.
The event takes place at The Pierre Hotel in New York City on Thursday, September 29, 2016. Details.
