“Glee” Star Max Adler Hosts Charity Gala to Benefit FSHD Research 10/18 in Los Angeles #LAStory
On October 18, 2015, “Glee” star Max Adler will host the Ghostly Gala to Vanish FSHD at the historic and elegant Cicada Club in downtown Los Angeles.
The Ghostly Gala is open to the public and all net proceeds benefit the FSH Society, an award-winning non-profit and global leader in the quest to cure Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy .
The Halloween costume ball will feature dinner, big band music, magic, a live auction, and a costume contest judged by Adler and friends. Costumes are optional, but cocktail or vintage attire is requested. Adler, whose family has been directly affected by FSHD, appears in a public service announcement to promote the Ghostly Gala.
Here’s the PSA (public service announcement) from Max Adler!
FSHD, one of the most prevalent types of muscular dystrophy, is a degenerative muscle disease that causes progressive weakness, rendering its sufferers unable to pursue their livelihoods. Adler’s mother and grandmother were among the close to 1 million men, women, and children who battle the disease. The condition is hereditary and patients face a 50 percent chance of passing it on to each child.
“There are thousands of people in southern California who are affected by FSHD and we’re so grateful to Max and our other advocates in the entertainment industry for using their celebrity to raise awareness” says June Kinoshita, Executive Director of the FSH Society. “This is a watershed moment, when we are embarking on the era of drug discovery. Much greater public visibility and resources are needed now that we are so close to having the first effective treatments for FSHD.”
