A special gala will be held Friday evening to raise awareness and funding for Suneel's Light Research Foundation. The organization was named after Suneel Ram. Since the age of three, Suneel, now 17, has coped with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
This Friday, eight local celebrities will be dancing at the Suneel's Celebrity Gala at Statler City in a fundraiser for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. The gala is designed much like a "Dancing with the Stars" competition. WBFO's Eileen Buckley talked to event organizers and one of the celebrity dancers about this light-hearted event for a very serious disease.
