Nancy Davis’ 21st Annual Race to Erase MS Fundraiser
It was our honor to attend Nancy Davis’ annual dinner and auction to help raise money to find a cure for MS on May 2nd at the Century Plaza Hotel. We joined nearly 2000 other people who were there to support Nancy’s two decade long crusade to help find a cure for this terrible disease that afflicts so many people. Motykie Med Spa was part of the lavish silent auction items – from jewelry to hotel stays around the world – that filled an entire ballroom. It was thrilling to hear that the hard work is paying off. When the charity started there were No drugs to treat MS. With the help of The Race’s “Center without Walls” there are now nine!
We’re so happy to have been a part of such a worthy cause. Aside from meeting many lovely new friends, we also had the pleasure of listening to live performances by CeeLo Green, Natalie Cole and Steven Tyler!!!

2014 21st Annual Race to Erase MS Gala
The 21st Annual Race to Erase MS Gala took place on May 2, 2014 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza. Themed “Love to Erase MS,” the event raised over $1.75 million to benefit the foundation’s Center Without Walls program to provide treatment and ultimately find a cure for MS.
The program included a live auction called by Howie Mandel and Jack Osbourne, during which lucky bidders walked away with items such as a dinner with the Osbourne family at the SoHo House and a week stay at Tommy Hilfiger’s luxurious private home on the Caribbean Island of Mustique. CeeLo Green opened the show performing hits “Bright Lights Bigger City”, “Crazy,” and “Forget You”. Grammy Award-winning artist Natalie Cole spiced up the night with “Everlasting Love” and “Oye Como Va.” Steven Tyler closed the show with his incredible performances of “Jaded,” “Cryin,” “Walk This Way,” and “Dream On.” Natalie Cole then joined him on stage for a magical duet of “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing.” In Race to Erase MS tradition, a rendition of “Lean On Me,” was performed as the finale of the evening, led by Steven Tyler, Randy Jackson, Natalie Cole, and Greg Phillinganes, who were joined on stage by Nancy Davis, Keegan Allen, David Osmond, Brenda Richie, Lynn Palmer, and more.
