Join us at Harrah's Reno for our 2018 Dinner of Champions. This inspiring education and fundraising event provides an opportunity to learn about how the National MS Society makes a difference in so many lives in our community and how you can help end MS forever.

Lee Dillard, Vice President and General Manager of Harrah’s Reno Hotel, will receive the MS Hope Award, the highest honor bestowed on individuals by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society

Honorees are outstanding examples of Champions in Nevada. They have demonstrated passion and dedication to our community. We are excited for the opportunity to have a dinner, both to show our appreciation to these honorees accomplishments and to continue to raise awareness and address the challenges of living with MS.

Together, we will BREAKTHROUGH MS.
