It’s one of the world’s cruelest and most unpredictable and devastating diseases.
It’s one of the world’s cruelest and most unpredictable and devastating diseases. That’s why the Lupus Foundation of America has adopted a mission to improve the quality of life for all people affected by the disease through research, education, support and advocacy. The foundation’s fundraising campaigns have specific disease-specific goals—reduce time to diagnosis, ensure patients have safe and effective treatments, and expand direct services and increase access to care.
Friends of the foundation’s New Jersey Chapter, based in Springfield, recently attended a fundraising event spearheaded by Debra Antoinette Kohn, a member of the board of directors. The annual Lupus, Research to Find a Cure program took place at Costa’s Restaurant in Roselle Park and included a fashion show, singers, dancers, DJ entertainment, plenty of good food and other activities. All money raised by the event supports sufferers of lupus and research for a cure. Pictured above are the models who participated in the fundraiser’s fashion show.
