Annual Masquerade Ball & Purple Ribbon Awards

Join us on Friday, April 1st for an evening full of celebration, fun and amazing company at the Lupus Foundation of Northern California's Annual Masquerade Ball.

On this evening, we honor outstanding contributions to the lupus community in the Purple Ribbon Awards ceremony, and recommit ourselves to improving lives of those impacted by lupus.  We are excited to FINALLY be back to an in-person event, but if you would rather join us from the comfort and safety of your own home we are also offering this as a virtual event!  You will be able to bid on the Silent Auction items and see to our Purple Ribbon Recipients.
