On November 2, 2019, more than 170 supporters of Sanford Burnham Prebys stepped into a winter wonderland at our Institute’s “Nordic Nights”-themed gala.

As attendees enjoyed the festivities—including an ethereal violinist on stilts and dancing ballerinas—the evening’s goal was never far from everyone’s mind: advancing biomedical research that will transform the future of human health. Thanks to guests’ generous donations our scientists can accelerate their efforts to understand and treat serious diseases such as Alzheimer’s, heart disease, cancer and more.
