We were delighted to host our first fundraising gala for the MGH Frontotemporal Disorders (FTD) Unit, on October 23, 2015 at the Boston Harbor Hotel. Katie Brandt, Liz Elefante, Katie Kelly, and Christina Caso were our staff organizers and worked with our Gala Advisory Board to develop an exciting program for the evening, including both silent and live auctions, 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 $100,000 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.

If you were not able to attend, you can still make a donation to support the fundraising effort by clicking this link. Please contact Katie Brandt regarding individual, family, or corporate/non-profit sponsorships. Thank you!

We are an interdisciplinary team of clinicians and researchers who are dedicated to the belief that, through the application of scientific approaches, we will advance our collective understanding of brain function and dysfunction which will ultimately improve our ability to diagnose, monitor, and treat patients with FTD and related disorders. Most of our research is supported by grants from federal agencies and private foundations. We raise additional money through donations and fundraisers to support new research projects that need seed funding to get started, and to extend the services that we can provide to patients and families that are not paid for through grants or by insurance, such as support groups and caregiver training. All the money donated goes directly to the MGH FTD Unit and is used to fund these activities.
