Welcome to the MGH FTD Unit
Help us raise money to fight FTD!
We were delighted to host our second annual community fundraising gala for the MGH Frontotemporal Disorders (FTD) Unit, on October 21, 2016 at the Royal Sonesta Hotel in Cambridge MA. Katie Brandt, Raseeka Premchander, Sam Krivensky, Kay Sweeney were our staff organizers and worked with our Gala Advisory Board to develop an exciting program for the evening, including live auctions, a flamenco dance performance, musical performances, and an art show. We did this event to try to raise money to expand our progams of research on FTD and related disorders and our services for patients and families living with these illnesses now.
The evening was a tremendous success, raising over $125,000 to expand our clinical programs and research efforts. Thanks to everyone who made this fabulous night possible, particularly Sybil and Kemon Sermos, who had the brilliant inspiration to hold an art show and auction and engaged their talented friends in the effort.
