Inside the Race to Erase MS Gala

Some of Hollywood’s biggest names attended the 23rd annual Race to Erase MS Gala held at the Beverly Hilton on Friday night. LL Cool J, Randy Jackson, Jaime Pressly, and Ashley Tisdale hosted the gala, which raises funds to provide treatment and eventually find a cure to multiple sclerosis.


Nancy Davis founded Race to Erase MS in 1993 after she was diagnosed with MS. Since her diagnosis, she has devoted her time and resources to finding a cure.
