Celebrate the FACES Community

2024 FACES Gala



$5.5 million



Mar 4, 2024 - 6:30 PM - 9:30 PM


FACES (Finding A Cure for Epilepsy and Seizures) and the NYU Langone Comprehensive Epilepsy Center are incredibly grateful for the tremendous generosity displayed for FACES Gala 2024. The evening was a testament to the resilience and unity of the FACES community, including individuals with epilepsy, their families and friends, volunteers, physicians, and researchers.

The remarkable success of the gala is a testament to the collective efforts of attendees, donors, sponsors, auction participants, and volunteers, numbering over 700 strong. Together, we raised an impressive $5.5 million!

These funds will directly benefit innovative research, enhance patient care, and bolster vital programs that ease the challenges faced by epilepsy patients and their families. They will support initiatives such as the Parent Network, FACES Apartments, Dr. Blanca Vazquez Summer Camp Scholarship, and FACES College Scholarship, along with offering annual free events like Game Day, the Peace of Mind Lecture series, and the Epilepsy Conference.

Our sincerest gratitude goes to the whole FACES community for their unwavering commitment in advancing our shared mission.
