The 1st Annual Myocarditis Foundation Gala was held on Monday June 20th at the Mandarin Oriental in New York City.

The event was held in honor of Matthew Corso, a 13-year-old myocarditis survivor who was honored with a standing ovation when introduced by his father, Christopher Corso, the Chairman of the event and Myocarditis Foundation Board member.

The event was a huge success with over 300 in attendance. The Gala consisted of dinner, cocktails, mingling, both a silent and live auction to raise funds for the mission of the Myocarditis Foundation (Research, Education/Awareness, and Family Support.)

Just like the Myocarditis Foundation reaches out worldwide to help those looking for answers, so were we blessed to have people from all over the globe in attendance to share the evening with us.

We look forward to seeing everyone again at next years Gala as well as the many who unfortunately were not able to attend this year.

We have shared the events of the evening with those who could not attend by posting this video of the event. Enjoy!

Thank you all for your continued support!

Genevieve Rumore
Executive Director
