The annual National MS Society Ambassadors Ball, a premiere event in the Washington, D.C., fall social season for the past 39 years, has raised more than $20 million to support the National MS Society. The 40th Ambassadors Ball welcomes Congressional Members, Ambassadors, business and philanthropic leaders and their spouses to honor the Diplomatic Corps for their charitable activities and humanitarian endeavors.

Your support helped us raise over half a million dollars for critical MS research and programs.

We are pleased to announce His Excellency Armando Varricchio and Mrs. Michaela Varricchio, Ambassador of Italy as the 2019 Ambassadors Ball Honorary Co-Chairs. To be notified when information about the 2019 Ambassadors Ball becomes available, email
