Thank you for making the 2020 Journey of Hope Gala an incredible event!

The Journey of Hope Gala celebrates New York’s brain injury community. Taking time to recognize those who have made significant advances in the field of brain injury, the 2020 Gala will bring us together virtually to revel in their achievements and raise funds for programs and services delivered directly to brain injury survivors.

Save your formal wear for another occasion. This celebration takes place right from the comfort of your own home!
