Event Highlights

Silent Auction
Bid on purses, gift baskets, vacation packages and more, all generously donated by members of the LAM community. If you would like to make a donation to the Breath of Hope Gala Silent Auction, please download THIS FORM for ideas for donations, a solicitation letter and information about submitting your donations. If you have any further questions about donations for the silent auction, please contact Katie Jensen at KJENSEN@THELAMFOUNDATION.ORG.

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

Fund A Cure
Raise your paddle to help us Fund A Cure for LAM! Emcee Sherry Truhlar will join us once again for 20 minutes of pure generosity. Fund A Cure works just like a live auction, except paddles are raised to donate funds directly to LAM research. It’s one auction where everyone is a winner!

Dinner, Drinks and Dancing
Join us for a moving program to celebrate women living with LAM and all that The LAM Foundation has accomplished. After dinner, enjoy the celebration as we dance the night away!
