Our Community Conference is a free event held every year and includes presentations from community members and professionals in the HD space. We cover topics like future planning, research, growing up in a HD family, testing and much more. The conference provides an opportunity for the community to connect with each other and listen to and share their stories.
This year we will be holding the conference virtually AND in person, with limited in person capacity.
The Gala Ball is our premier fundraising event of the year. All funds raised from this night, go directly to supporting our community through our services. Each year this event attracts over 350 guests including specialists, researchers, professionals, corporations, friends and our most distinguished guests – the HD Community. This event is about fun and celebration, but also about learning about the impact that this disease has on individuals and families. You can expect: drinks and a 3-course meal, music, live auction, raffle and MORE!
