The annual Dealing for Duchenne event is a fun and inspiring evening for a very worthy cause. Every year celebrities, athletes, families, scientists, and community business leaders gather to support Cure Duchenne and the Center for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy at UCLA.

This year, Cure Duchenne is proud to honor retired President and CEO of Warner Bros. Records, Tom Whalley and Global CMO of General Motors, Joel Ewanick. These two families have committed valuable time, and resources to Cure Duchenne and have been instrumental in gaining public awareness.

Duchenne is the most common muscle disease in children. One in every 3,500 boys born worldwide will be afflicted with Duchenne. It progressively robs these boys of their ability to move and cuts their lives short, just before these young men make their mark on the world.

The event will take place on May 7 at Sony Studios, 10202 W Washington Blvd, Culver City, California. Whether you decide to play in the Poker Tournament, browse the Silent Auction, play Craps and Black Jack, listen to Live Music, or just socialize and nibble on the amazing food by Wolfgang Puck you are guaranteed to enjoy yourself AND help fight this disease at the same time.

The Honorary Committee for the event includes Sofia Vergara, Clay Matthews, David Foster, Seal, Mandy Moore, Molly Ringwald, Anne Heche, Parker Stevensen and many more.

Tables for 10 are priced at $2,000. Individual tickets are priced at $175. More information can be found here.

The charity is also currently auctioning tickets to Australia to meet Justin Bieber.
