MS Gala Luncheon

Join us for the cause, stay for the fun!

Our 35th Annual MS Gala Luncheon is a premier event where Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach communities and their business leaders come together for an afternoon of unforgettable fashions, upscale silent auction items, and to raise critical funds and awareness to help find a cure for multiple sclerosis.
Rocco Mangel

MS Hope Award Honoree

The National MS Society is proud to recognize Rocco Mangel, Partner, Rocco’s Tacos & Tequila Bar at our Annual MS Gala Luncheon with the MS Hope Award. This is the most prestigious award given by the Society and is presented to an individual that has played a significant role in improving the quality of life for those living with MS and bringing hope and help to those facing physical and emotional challenges. Rocco Mangel is the man behind Rocco’s Tacos & Tequila Bar. With seven restaurants in Florida and New York, and two on the way for 2017, he is at the forefront of the Mexican cuisine game. He is also a devoted father, a successful philanthroper, and earlier this year he announced that he was living with multiple sclerosis. By publicly sharing his diagnosis, Rocco hopes to let people to know that his life, and those of others with MS, can continue to thrive. Serving as a voice for MS Rocco has raised $140,000 for the National MS Society.
