Another fabulous night on the town - S.L.E. Annual Gala in NYC!

The guys at S.L.E. Lupus Foundation in NYC sure know how to kick up their heels...and for a good cause, too! 

Check out their upcoming event coming up in November - the “Life Without Lupus Gala 2012: Turning Lupus Research Upside Down”.

As the organization says, "this year’s black tie event celebrates the novel and innovative science that is turning the tables on lupus. Board member Fern Tessler and her husband Lenard will be honored for their outstanding leadership in advancing innovative lupus research! During the event, guests will be swaying to Gershwin’s classic ‘Summertime’ when five-time Tony award winner Audra McDonald takes the stage. A star of television, movies and the theatre, Audra was just recognized as 2012 Best Actress in a Musical for her starring role in Porgy and Bess. "

While tickets might be out of your own price range, perhaps your company is interested in getting involved with the cause. Never hurts to ask!
