The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation will host A Magical Evening event in New York City tonight.
The event, hosted by Meredith Vieira and will feature a performance by Tony Award Winner Lena Hall and Pitch Perfect’s Ben Platt with appearances by Meryl Streep, Jenna Bush Hager, Eric LeGrand and more.
The evening will feature a tribute to the past 25-years of the Reeve Foundation to honor the milestone anniversary of A Magical Evening, as well as an update on scientific breakthroughs like epidural stimulation which enabled four young men—all completely paralyzed—to stand, voluntarily move their legs, and recover critical autonomic functions. Last year, the Reeve Foundation unveiled a historic campaign, called The Big Idea, to fast track the next phase of epidural stimulation research with the mission of expediting the potential therapy to the clinic.

Through the Reeve Foundation’s persistence and promise, neuroscientists around the world agree that repairing the damaged spinal cord is not a question of if, but a question of when. The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to curing spinal cord injury by funding innovative research, and improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis through grants, information and advocacy. Proceeds from A Magical Evening enable the Reeve Foundation to continue its pivotal work. For more information, click here.
