Henninger High School in Syracuse raising awareness about Lupus while celebrating Senior Night on Friday, February 10th. As the JV and Varsity basketball teams take on West Genesee High School (5:30 pm and 7:00 pm respectively), students and supporters will have access to free educational and informational materials from LAUNY. They will also have the opportunity to support the organization by purchasing purple wristbands and boxes of gourmet chocolate for Valentine's Day. All funds raised will help provide free programs and services to the Central New York Lupus community. Thanks, Henninger High School!

Lupus Alliance of Upstate New York launched its first-ever research-specific campaign, to run July 15 - August 15, 2016. Every penny of every dollar received during the campaign, designated for research only, will go directly to lupus research conducted in upstate New York facilities. Lupus poses many questions. Research holds the answers. Give here!
The Lupus Alliance of Upstate New York is partnering with food banks throughout our 33-county service area to ensure information about lupus and program support is available to those who struggle just to put food on the table. The food banks collectively support nearly 3,000 member agencies.
All too often those who are burdened with health issues end up struggling financially, whether because they are not well enough to work or because medical care depletes their resources. We want to ease that burden for those who suffer with lupus. LAUNY is grateful that reaching out to regional food banks has yielded great partners in the fulfillment of our mission.
In a brewery challenge celebrating Lupus Awareness Month in May, one brewery out-shined the rest. The patrons and staff of Resurgence Brewery raised nearly $1500 in support of the programs provided by the Lupus Alliance of Upstate New York to our WNY lupus community. Heartfelt thanks to all who supported this event!
