MECP2 Duplication Gala

We're here for you.

Count On Me

The MECP2 Duplication Foundation Virtual Gala

The MECP2 Duplication Foundation has re-designed the 2021 Gala into an exciting and incredible, “live” virtual event, allowing supporters and viewers from all over the world to participate.  The Gala will be hosted by Bobby Rich of Tucson’s The Drive 101.7 and Brian Schweitzer, former governor of Montana.

Date: Friday, May 7th
Time: 5:30 pm Pacific / 8:30 pm Eastern
Where: Where it is most comfortable and safe for you to watch!

This year’s event will offer multiple giveaways of valuable prizes to viewers, inspiring stories from our community, including helping families through their diagnosis, research updates, and how you can help be part of the Cure for MECP2 Duplication Syndrome. There will be inspirational entertainment, as well as a wide range of community support and uplifting surprises.

Your generosity will directly support the development of a MECP2 Duplication Severity Scale which is a necessary step in the FDA process for all existing and future treatment efforts.

We hope that you will consider supporting this effort with a registration donation gift for watching the event or with one of our prestigious sponsorship or underwriting opportunities and help the MECP2 Duplication Foundation and families during our Virtual Gala this spring and come together for a cure.

Thank you to our amazing sponsors!
