Yolanda Hadid and some familiar faces stepped out Wednesday night (October 11) in NYC for the third annual Global Lyme Alliance Gala. Yolanda, who has always been vocal about her battle with Lyme disease, even got some support from The Real Housewives of New York City‘s Ramona Singer.

Other attendees included: Matchbox 20 front man Rob Thomas and his wife, Marisol Thomas, Ally Hilfiger, Bryan Adams, Daughtry, Joseph Abboud, and musician Bryan Adams.

The Daily Dish attended the event in 2016 and spoke to Yolanda about using the night as a platform to raise awareness for the disease. “We keep trying. There is no cure. In the medical business, the pharmaceutical business is a $700 billion business and yet there’s no cure for Lyme disease, even though the first case was diagnosed in 1972,” she said. “I mean, you go and figure why is there no cure, why is this room full of people that are struggling and suffering? We don’t know.”
