THE 20th ANNUAL DESIGNCARE GALA is an annual fundraising event produced by actress Holly Robinson-Peete and her husband Rodney Peete through their nonprofit organization, The HollyRod Foundation (HRF), and benefits those with Parkinson’s disease and autism.
What began 20 years ago as an intimate mixer, DesignCare has grown to become the most exclusive, celebrity charity events of the summer.

Robinson, Jr. Award of Courage”, Microsoft with the “HollyRod Corporate Compassion Award”, Artist Stephen Wiltshire (British Architectural Artist with autism) with the “HollyRod Champion Award” and Lisa Ackerman with the “Karen E.
