April 20: Yellow Rose Gala Foundation’s “Fly Me To A Cure”

The Yellow Rose Gala Foundation’s annual gala “Fly Me to A Cure” happens on Saturday, April 20, 2024, at the Renaissance Dallas Hotel.  The theme this year signifies the dream of flying away from the challenges of Multiple Sclerosis and soaring towards a cure.  The evening will include a cocktail reception, gourmet dinner, silent auction, live auction, raffle and, of course, fabulous entertainment and music to dance the night away.

Hey, Baby – Where did our love go?  You keep me hanging on, plus, you can’t hurry love!  So, stop…in the name of love + reflections…come see about me!  Did you get the clues?  Scherrie Payne and Lynda Laurence, formerly of the Supremes, will help the crowd take flight and dance the night away!

Jonathan Wright and Sheila Wright Greene are in the pilot seats for this year as gala chairs, along with active supporters Diana and Mike Miller as honorary chairs and Susan Lancaster for the Dee Wynne courage award as one who has shown outstanding courage during her journey with MS for 26 years.

Simmons Bank is the gala’s presenting sponsor with The Bobby Norris Foundation as a matching sponsor.  The Mike and Diana Miller Family, Rich Young Co., Rodgers O’Brien Construction, BNSF, Andrew Jackson, Jane Lombardi, Renaissance Dallas Hotel, UT Southwestern Peter O’Donnell, Jr. Brain Institute, and Texas Health Resources are also sponsors.

 The Yellow Rose Gala Foundation was established by Dee and Jimmy Wynne in 1986 shortly after Dee’s Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis.  The gala became one of the most prominent social events in Dallas from 1986-2001 netting over six million dollars directly to Multiple Sclerosis research.  Fallon Wynne Way and Todd Wynne re-established the gala along with many other supporters to actively partner with progressive MS research through the National MS Society, The International Progressive MS Alliance and UT Southwestern’s Peter O’Donnell, Jr. Brain Institute.

Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic and unpredictable disease of the central nervous system that affects more than 2.3 million people worldwide.  There is currently no cure for MS, but there are treatments than can help manage the symptoms and slow down the progression of the disease.  Research is crucial to finding a cure.

Tickets and sponsorships for the gala are available online at http://www.theyellowrose.org or by calling 512-842-7673.  The gala will be held at The Renaissance Dallas Hotel, 2222 North Stemmons Freeway, Dallas, Texas. 75207, on Saturday, April 20, 2024, from 6:00 p.m. -12:00 midnight.
