Grab your boarding passes as the “30th Anniversary MS Gala Luncheon” is preparing for takeoff. More than 1,200 guests from the tri-county area will attend the philanthropic event, presented by the National Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society’s South Florida Chapter and DBS Financial Group/MassMutual, the title sponsor. This year’s honorees are the Rothman family: Fred, Jodi, Lecia and Alie. The Rothmans, with a long-term commitment to philanthropy, learned firsthand about the concerns of MS when Alie was diagnosed with MS during her freshman year of high school. They are dedicated to finding a cure. The family created a team for the MS Boca Walk raising more than $650,000, and Fred became one of the top fundraisers in the country. Jodi now chairs the Boca walk committee and Lecia created an interactive trivia game during the walk that is now implemented in all of the walks in South Florida. Alie started “The Alie Fund” for children with MS, which has raised almost $100,000 and is expanding nationally. Three-time event chair, Deborah DelPrete, will preside and be assisted by honorary chairs Monica Goldstein and Carrie Schulman. Fashion designer Rene Ruiz will present his Spring/Summer 2013 collection. The runway models will wear jewelry provided by J.R. Dunn Jewelers, the official jewelry sponsor of the event. Tickets are $150. For more info, to purchase tickets or to recieve an invitation, please contact Monica Whiting at 954-731-4224 or
