2017 MDA Toast to Life Jacksonville FL

About the Gala

MDA is leading the fight to free individuals – and the families who love them – from the harm of muscular dystrophy, ALS and related muscle-debilitating diseases that take away physical strength, independence and life.

Through event sponsorships, ticket sales, bidding at the silent and live auctions, and the MDA Summer Camp Appeal, Toast to Life is poised to become the largest MDA-sponsored fundraiser in our community.
