The Dinner of Champions
is a premier fundraising event honoring corporate leaders for their significant contributions to the philanthropic community. Over its 15 year history this event has raised nearly $3M to support cutting-edge research and provide vital funds, for the more than 55,000 individuals and their families living with MS in the Mid America Chapter. 

MS stops people from moving. The MS Society exists to make sure it doesn't. Each day we make strides towards finding a treatment to stop the progression, restore functions already lost and end MS forever, but none of this would be possible without your support. Please join us!
