Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE), the world’s largest private source of funding for food allergy research, will hold the 21st Annual Food Allergy Ball on Dec. 3, 2018, at the Ziegfeld Ballroom in New York City. All proceeds will benefit FARE, a national nonprofit organization with the mission of improving the quality of life and the health of individuals with food allergies, and providing them hope through the promise of new treatments.

Food allergies among children have risen dramatically, increasing by 50 percent from 2007-2011, and every 3 minutes, a food allergy reaction sends someone to the emergency room. The need for therapies for life-threatening food allergies is urgent. FARE’s signature Food Allergy Ball has raised more than $12 million in the last five years to advance research and support life-changing initiatives on behalf of the 15 million American with food allergies.
