GLA is hosting its annual gala on October 13th, 2022 at Cipriani 42nd Street. We look forward to seeing you there!

Join Global Lyme Alliance for the premier annual fundraising event dedicated to Lyme and other tick-borne diseases. The GLA Global Gala brings together leaders in business, entertainment, and science. Guests are invited to our inspirational event in support of GLA’s mission to conquer this insidious disease.

Untitled design-6Awareness and funding of Lyme disease are more important than ever, with a record number of cases reported. According to the CDC, there are 476,000 new cases of Lyme disease each year in the U.S. Your support can make a difference—for patients today and tomorrow. 

The GLA Global Gala Honorees

5-3This year's honorees are Kim Cleworth and Atty Cleworth,  Executive Producers of the film I'm Not Crazy, I'm Sick (coming to distribution soon). Clips of the film will be featured at the gala as we honor Kim and Atty for their work on this important film, as well as their incredible journey of being a Lyme patient and caregiver.
