Fox News’ Carlson to emcee ‘Time For Lyme’ gala

Fox News’ anchor and Greenwich resident Gretchen Carlson will emcee Lyme Research Alliance’s annual “Time for Lyme” Gala, on Saturday, Apr. 5, at the Hyatt Regency in Old Greenwich.

Ms. Carlson, who anchors and hosts the daytime program The Real Story With Gretchen Carlson on Fox News, has been personally affected by Lyme disease, a bacterial infection transmitted by black-legged ticks.

The Lyme Research Alliance (LRA) seeks to raise awareness about the dangers of lyme disease, and support the fight for a cure. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), some 300,000 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with Lyme every year, making the illness a tremendous public health problem. It is the most commonly reported vector-borne illness in the U.S. and the epidemic is spreading worldwide.

LRA’s Time for Lyme Gala is the nonprofit’s largest fundraiser of the year. Proceeds go towards funding important medical research projects, such as their 2007 partnership with Columbia University Medical Center and the Lyme Disease Association to endow the nation’s first Lyme and Tick-Borne Disease Research Center at Columbia.

The gala will be held from 6:30 p.m. to midnight. The evening features a cocktail reception, dinner, dancing, live auction and special celebrity guest appearances.
