On Monday, March 12, 50 members and friends of The Auxiliary of NorthShore University HealthSystem (NorthShore) at Evanston & Glenbrook Hospitals gathered at Zapatista in Northfield to kick-off the organization’s 40th annual Gala, “Latin Nights, City Lights.” The party offered guests a glimpse of the Latin flair and fusion they will enjoy at this year’s highly anticipated event. Guests sipped sangria and margaritas while sampling spicy Latin cuisine. This year’s Gala co-chairmen, Julie Karagianis of Northbrook and Gayle Stellas of Glenview welcomed guests and introduced Demetrius M. Maraganore, MD, Ruth Cain Ruggles Chair of the Department of Neurology at NorthShore. Dr. Maraganore’s visionary research, “The DodoNA Project: DNA Prediction to Improve Neurological Health,” will once again serve as the beneficiary of the Gala.
Dr. Maraganore shared his vision for The DodoNA Project, which is ultimately to be able to predict, prevent and halt neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, ALS, brain tumors and multiple sclerosis. He discussed the progress and future of the Project, which has been made possible thanks to the generous and continued support of The Auxiliary of NorthShore at Evanston & Glenbrook Hospitals’ Gala.
This year’s Gala, “Latin Nights, City Lights,” will take place at the Hilton Chicago Grand Ballroom on Saturday, June 23, at 6:30 p.m. The evening will include live entertainment, dinner, dancing, tempting silent and live auctions, and much more. Tickets are $400 and all proceeds will support The DodoNA Project at NorthShore.
