The Tick-Borne Disease Alliance (, the nation’s leading charity focused on raising awareness and funds for the development of accurate and reliable diagnostic tests for Lyme disease, hosted it's third annual fundraising gala,
“The Great Imitator Masquerade Ball,” which looks to shed light on Lyme and other tick-borne diseases. Ben Stiller, Kevin Bacon, Dr. Mehmet Oz and New York Mets player David Wright share their powerful public messages in support of TBDA and the need to raise awareness for this debilitating disease. In addition, an original Alexander Calder 1964 Gouache painting has been donated to the gala silent auction by Calder’s daughter, Sondra Davidson, valued at $80,000 dollars. The TBDA gala honored a group of courageous individuals, all of whom have been personally affected by Lyme and will officially kick off May as National Lyme Disease
 Awareness month.

Attending were: Stars of “Real Housewives of New York City” Heather Thomson and Countess LuAnn De Lesseps, Actress Karen Allen, 2014 Winter Olympian and Lyme Advocate Angeli VanLaanen, Equestrian professional and youngest daughter of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg Georgina Bloomberg, Ann Bass’ daughter Samantha Bass, Annaliese Soros, Grand Prix equestrian jump rider and World Cup finalist Judy Garofalo-Torres, Eileen and Leslie C. Quick, III., 2014 Miss New York Teen USA Corrin Stellakis, Blackstone Managing Director David Roth, Merrill Lynch Managing Director Charles Balducci, Deutsche Bank Securities Managing Director Drew Goldman, New York Hedge Fund Manager Neil Crespi, Peter Jay Sharp Foundations President Norman Peck, Leading U.S. Attorney and Partner at Paul Weiss Law Firm Robert Fleder, AboveNet Communications CEO Stephen A. Garofalo, among other notables to be announced at a later date.
