The Gala was held Saturday May 14th  at the The American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center.

Pat Collins, award winning reporter with NBC News4 was our awards presentation master of ceremonies as we honored the First Lady of Maryland Yumi Hogan with the Cy Katzen Humanitarian Award.

There were many moving speeches including First Lady of Maryland Yumi Hogan, and guests were treated by a special performance by the Tender Hearts.  We furthered our mission by raising more money for research, and we look now toward 2017.
