Thanks to everyone who helped make the fifth annual Diamond Awards a success. This year’s event, held January 28 at the Hilton Minneapolis, attracted more than 500 guests and raised nearly $205,000 for neurodegenerative and neuromuscular disease research and care at the University of Minnesota.

In addition to the funds raised by registrations and sponsorships before the event, a special appeal by Betty Allison Kaplan, Bob Allison’s widow, raised more than $13,000 at the awards dinner that evening.
