Carole, a Philadelphia philanthropist and champion of the arts, will be recognized for her support of the important work Beyond Celiac has underway to accelerate new treatments and a cure for celiac disease. Funds raised through the gala will benefit our efforts to advance research for celiac disease, including the funding of grants to scientists focused on unlocking the secrets of this serious genetic autoimmune disorder.
