The Gala was held on September 30, 2023 in Bethesda, MD.  Learn more about the event here!

The Past is a Link to the Future Gala will feature a cocktail reception and seated dinner.  Sal Valentinetti, our entertainment for the evening, will bring us back in time for a night of BIG-BAND & BIG-PHUN.  We will honor Lauren Fishbein, MD, PhD, Associate Professor, University of Colorado Health, for her dedication to educate the patient community and amplify the patient voice.

Through the generosity of Betsy Herold and friends, all proceeds will go to support Pheo Para Alliance’s mission, which is to invest in research to accelerate treatments and cures for the disease while empowering patients, their families and medical professionals through advocacy, education and a global community of support.

Valet parking for guests of the Gala will be paid for.  Please let the valet attendants know that you are attending the Pheo Para Gala.  You will receive a PPA card at registration which you can give to the valet attendant when you leave to verify that the cost will be covered.  Please share this information with your table guests, if appropriate.

Special thanks to our sponsors:

Sal “The Voice” Valentinetti will provide an unforgettable evening of Big Band entertainment. Sal was a finalist and the 2016 recipient of judge Heidi Klum’s Golden Buzzer on the popular TV program “America’s Got Talent.” He is an Italian-American crooner with flawless vocals, a larger than life personality, and a heart of gold.  Sal was born on August 26, 1995, and his musical choices developed in his early childhood when his grandmother introduced him to the classical crooner sounds of Dean Martin, Tony Bennett and Frank Sinatra.
