Breath of Hope Gala

Saturday, September 10


Join for an evening of hope, inspiration, and generosity at the Breath of Hope Gala. This black tie-optional event is the LAM Foundation’s largest annual fundraiser and is attended by individuals with LAM, their families and friends, along with the scientific and medical LAM community. Featuring cocktails, dinner, dancing, and celebration, it’s a night you won’t want to miss.

Entrance to the Breath of Hope Gala is complimentary to all conference attendees. Individual tickets and table sponsorships may be purchased here.



Event Highlights

Silent Auction

By popular demand, the silent auction is making a comeback! Bid on unique items, gift baskets, vacation packages, and more, all generously donated by members of the LAM community.

There will be a small in-person auction for LAMposium attendees, but most items will be up for bidding online for our entire LAM community to participate. Please help us gather items for our auction, as part of The LAM Foundation’s Breath of Hope Gala on September 10, 2022. The online auction link will be shared nationally so items/gift certificates can come from anywhere. Look for items that can be enjoyed by many and are easy to ship. Please consider donating two of the same items, one for those bidding in person and one for online only. Click here for some ideas.

If you have any further questions or ideas about donations for the silent auction, please email Julie Wogenstahl at The solicitation letter linked in the button below may be used for donor organizations. Please download and include the donation form linked below with your item(s).



Rose Ceremony

The rose ceremony is a Breath of Hope Gala tradition not to be missed. Every woman with LAM in the room will be invited to the stage to receive a rose in her honor and then gather for a beautiful group photo.

Fund A Cure

Fund A Cure is just like a live auction, except paddles are raised to donate funds to The LAM Foundation and 100% of the evening’s donations will go directly to LAM research. It’s an auction where everyone is a winner. Raise your paddle to help us Fund A Cure for LAM!
