A disease with no cure, lupus affects 1.5 Million people in the US, which is more than cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis combined. Ninety percent of lupus patients are women. The Orange Ball raises funds for Lupus LA, which promotes lupus research, awareness, education and serves the needs of people with lupus and their families in Southern California. In the past 13 years, the Orange Ball has raised over $3.5 Million for the cause. To learn how you can “Get Into The Loop” or purchase tickets please visit lupusla.org or call 310.657.LOOP.
