The non-profit organization, Justin’s TRIumph Over GAN, hosted its inaugural gala and auction titled Allies For GAN to raise awareness for the rare genetic mutation called Giant Axonal Neuropathy. The event was a WWII 1940s theme complete with GAN Bomber specialty drinks and cuisine. Guests were treated to the Third Coast Swing band. Auction highlights included two flights in original WWII planes, packages for trips to Colorado and Galveston, and a weekend stay at a home in Round Top for antiques week. Proceeds from the gala and auction all go toward funding research to find a cure for GAN. See justinstriumph.org.
