With Rosanna Scotto as the hostess of the night, the Global Lyme Alliance (GLA) Global Gala 2022 raised more than $1.85 million to advance its mission to conquer Lyme. A live auction led by Jason Lamoreaux auctioned items including a trilogy of sports events, travel experiences, and a golf weekend with professional Jimmy Walker for which bidding was keen.

The evening program began with cocktails and dinner, contributed by Debbie Gibson, and a speech by Broadway Star Ashley Loren, on the impact that Lyme disease has had on their lives. The event was hosted by master of ceremonies Rosanna Scotto, Co-Host of FOX 5 “Good Day New York.” The evening also featured an exceptional live performance of a duet featuring Recording Artist Pia Toscano and Andrea Bocelli and later in the night included Erich Bergen, the Star of Madam Secretary, and both the stage and screen versions of Jersey Boys.
