5th Annual Purple Passion Gala to End Lupus!

This year's honorees are Dr. David Stump and Dr. William Freimuth. They are being recognized for their remarkable breakthrough for rheumatologists treating lupus and for lupus patients who finally have a medication specifically targeting their immunoregulatory disturbances.
By selecting David and Bill for this Award, we are celebrating the power of research, and their determination to overcome the barriers that have impeded progress for decades in the fight against lupus. They took important first steps in solving “the cruel mystery” of this disease. It is particularly fitting that this award will be celebrated with the doctors who have been so involved in the daily challenges of treating lupus, to find hope and answers for those living with this disease.
We are pleased to announce that our 2013 Pamela B. Greenberg Volunteer of the Year Award recipient is Marguerete Luter. Marguerete currently serves on the LFA –DMV Board and is Immediate Past Chair. Over her 6+ years on the LFA-DMV Board of Directors, Marguerete worked tirelessly to ensure the growth and sustainability of the organization. Her passion to help members of the local lupus community is evident through her attendance and participation at the Chapter’s Educational Lupus Summits and Walk to End Lupus Now events. Marguerete has been an instrumental asset to the planning of our Annual Gala and Luncheon and offers valuable insight that ensures the Chapter’s strategic vision is achieved.
We are currently accepting items for our live and silent auctions. Information on donating an item can be found here.
