On Monday November, 30, The Alliance for Lupus Research, Lupus Research Institute and S.L.E. Lupus Foundation joined together to host a dinner in honor of their upcoming merger. The dinner included a performance from broadway, film and singer/actress Megan Hilty, whose Hollywood glamour and powerful voice brought the audience to their feet. During the evening, the Corporate Leadership Award was presented to Michelle Ifill on behalf of Verizon Communications, Inc. Two extraordinary women were presented with the 2015 Visionary Award - Susan Golick, S.L.E. Lupus Foundation founder and Jennie DeScherer, dedicated member of the Board of the Foundation and Lupus Research Institute.
