Join us at the 2019 Greater Philadelphia Black-N-Blue Ball as we present Philadelphia Phillies player Rhys Hoskins with the first annual Champion of Spirit Award. The Greater Philadelphia Black-N-Blue Ball is a high-profile social event dedicated to raising funds and awareness for local individuals living with neuromuscular disease.  Each year, more than 250 business leaders come out in their best blue jeans & black tie outfits for an evening of exquisite cuisine, fabulous entertainment and lively auctions.   This year's event will celebrate Rhy's commitment to the MDA, our dedicated partners at Brian's Harley-Davidson, and all of the progress being made for children and families affected by these debilitating diseases.

​The Muscular Dystrophy Associations (MDA)'s Black-N-Blue Ball is an event dedicated to saving and improving lives. At MDA, we are fighting to free individuals - and the families who love them - from the harmful effects of Muscular Dystrophy, ALS, and related diseases so they can live longer and grow stronger.

The team at Brian's Harley-Davidson has raised over $1.85 million for Greater Philadelphia MDA in our 32 year partnership.  Companies like Brian's H-D and the contributions to MDA Black-N-Blue Balls have allowed the MDA to invest more than $1 billion in research in the last six decades.  These investment have led directly to many major medial and scientific advances, including five new treatments becoming available in the last three years. 

Your support is crucial to help MDA raise the funds and awareness needed to accelerate treatments and cures that will bring strength, independence, and life to kids and adults living with life-threatening diseases.   Your sponsorship and gifts fund medical care centers, summer camp for local children, support groups and life saving research.  We can't wait to see you there!
