Commitment to Cures is our annual fundraising dinner held in conjunction with the American Academy of Neurology’s Annual Meeting. This year, our event will be held on Wednesday, May 8, 2019 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Join us at The Union League of Philadelphia to celebrate a community driven to find a cure. Support the important work to cure brain diseases and disorders while enjoying an evening at one of Philadelphia’s historical treasures.
Founded in 1862, The Union League of Philadelphia served as a patriotic society to support the Union and the policies of President Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War. In present day, it provides members with an experience rich in history with modern day elegance.
