On Sunday, April 29th at 3:00 pm, the Canavan Foundation will be heading to Broadway's Imperial Theater to see Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel for our 2018 Theater Gala. At a 12:30 pm lunch beforehand at Sardi’s restaurant, the inimitable Joey Parnes, one of the show's producers, will join us for a discussion before we head to the theater.
The Canavan Foundation is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization dedicated to educating at-risk populations about Canavan disease and other Jewish genetic diseases and the reproductive options available to carrier couples. We encourage carrier screening for these diseases whenever appropriate. In addition, the foundation supports research that searches for treatments and a cure for Canavan disease. Our annual theater gala is our most important source of funding.
Benefactor tickets are $1,000, Patron tickets are $500 and Friend tickets are $325. Lunch before at Sardi's is $75. For more information on purchasing tickets:
