The Great Gatsby Gala transports our guests back to the roaring 20's for a one-of-a-kind experience to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. This year we aim to raise over $350,000 in support of critical research and services that improve the lives of our friends and neighbors living with or impacted by MS. Since 1988, the Great Gatsby Gala has raised nearly $2 Million dollars to support our mission of curing MS while empowering people affected by MS to live their best lives.

Whether you have a personal or business connection to our mission or are looking for a unique experience for your family and friends, we invite you to join us for the excitement! Our restaurant partners, silent and live auctions, raffle and festive guests make the Great Gatsby Gala a night to remember. We recognize this past year has been unlike any other and can't wait to see our healthcare partners, dedicated support group leaders, MS activists, Trustees, sponsors, and donors together again, and are excited to celebrate with you safely at this year's Gala! The attire is 1920's, vintage baseball, or garden party.


We are excited to celebrate with you safely at the 34th annual Great Gatsby Gala at Truist Field on July 30, 2022. We've planned every detail of this event with the health and safety of our attendees, volunteers, and staff as our highest priority. Safety protocols are in place that follow current guidance from the CDC, as well as state, city and other local agencies. This includes mandatory face coverings, regardless of vaccination status, reduced touchpoints to minimize physical interactions, and adhering to capacity limits of the venue. Please note that plans may be altered as the event day approaches to ensure your safety. Learn more about COVID-19 safety and what to expect.
