The Food Allergy Initiative held their 15th annual Food Allergy Ball at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel on Monday.
The evening's proceeds will benefit FAI’s research, education, and public policy programs, aimed at finding a cure and raising awareness of life-threatening food allergies.
The Food Allergy Initiative (FAI) is the world’s largest source of private funding for food allergy research. FAI’s goal is to fund research that seeks a cure; to improve diagnosis and treatment; to increase federal funding of food allergy research and to create safer environments through advocacy; and to raise awareness through education. Founded in 1998 by concerned parents and grandparents, FAI has committed nearly $77 million toward the fulfillment of its mission. A national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, FAI is supported solely by donations from dedicated individuals, corporations, and foundations. For more information, visit FAI at www.faiusa.org.
