Thursday, October 29, 2020, the Tourette Association of America (TAA), national nonprofit organization serving the Tourette Syndrome (TS) and Tic Disorder community, will host a virtual gala to raise awareness of the condition.

Due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, for the first time ever, the Annual Gala will be held virtually and will be affordable for the public to attend. With tickets as low as $10, attendees have access to celebrity guest speakers including John Lithgow, Dash Mihok, Michael Wolff, David Begnaud, Jeffrey Kramer, Richard Dreyfuss and so many more. In addition, the evening will showcase inspiration from within the community including Ben Brown, host of the Tourette’s Podcast, as emcee, TAA Youth Ambassadors and Rising Leaders, as well as a heartfelt message from the 2021 Gala honoree Nick Ladevaio, Vice President – Diversity + Inclusion, L’Oreal USA.

Coupled with the exceptional line-up of speakers is an online auction with lavish trips, autographed memorabilia from singers like Billie Eilish to sports gear from Russel Westbrook. The Virtual Gala serves as the largest fundraising event of the year and enables the TAA to continue providing much-needed assistance to the Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorder community across the nation.
