Aptly named “Turning Lupus Research Upside Down,” this
year’s black tie “Life Without Lupus Gala 2012” 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! And while the November
19 Gala kicks off the holiday season, guests will be swaying
to Gershwin’s classic ‘Summertime’ when five-time Tony award
winner Audra McDonald takes the stage. A star of
television, film and theatre, Audra was just recognized as
2012 Best Actress in a Musical for her starring role in
Porgy and Bess. Honorary Chairman: Honorable
Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
Willie Geist, Co-Host MSNBC Morning Joe, Special
Guest, Jessye Norman, Opera legend
