25TH ANNUAL RACE TO ERASE MS GALA

25TH ANNUAL RACE TO ERASE MS GALA

Jackie Watson, the French reporter, was on the red carpet at the 25th Annual Race to Erase MS Gala held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel’s International Ballroom.

The Race to Erase MS event is a celebrity, spectacular gala held every year to help raise funds for the research and cure of multiple sclerosis. This year 25th Annual Race to Erase MS Gala was hosted by comedian Scott Rogowsky.

The Race to Erase MS organization was founded in 1993 by philanthropist, jewelry and clothing designer and author, Nancy Davis, who was diagnosed with MS in 1991.

Jackie had the wonderful privilege of speaking with several celebrities at the event such as Camille Grammer, Peter Facinelli, Ken Rickle, Allison Baver, Lance Bass, Paris Sanders, Derek Warburton, Randy Jackson, Byron Allen, Kathy Hilton, Anne Heche, and LaToya Jackson.

Jackie asked a few celebs to describe Nancy Davis in two words and here are their answers:
According to Ajiona Alexus, ‘Nancy is amazing, phenomenal, strong. Someone to really follow.’ Kathy Hilton says, “She is a living angel on this earth.” Paris Sanders says, “I think she’s such a strong and courageous woman for fighting this illness and helping other people in the process.” Ken Rickle says, “She is an amazing mom and she is very passionate about a lot of different things.” Olivia Sanabia describes Nancy in one word, “Inspirational.” Kate Linder says, “She does not give up.” And Camille Grammer describes Nancy as being a powerhouse. Our words exactly!

There were special musical performances by FLO RIDA, ELLE KING and SIEDAH GARRETT.

This was such a great event and all for a very special cause! It was truly an honor to be a part of this special gala.

According to the Erase MS website, these annual gala’s have been instrumental in raising desperately needed funds for important MS research. Proceeds go directly to the Center Without Walls program, a unique collaboration of eminent physicians, scientists and clinicians nationwide developing innovative research programs and new therapeutic approaches to eradicate MS from our planet forever. They are advancing our efforts to find a cure much faster than any one entity could alone. (ref: www.erasems.org).
