Inaugural Dinner

Other Desert Cities


Past Events


On December 9, 2012, the Juvenile Arthritis Association hosted its inaugural event – a benefit dinner to introduce the organization to friends, families, and colleagues of our board of directors. The dinner was hosted by actress Teri Hatcher (Desperate Housewives) and acclaimed playwright Jon Robin Baitz. Mr. Baitz’s Tony award-nominated play Other Desert Cities opened at the Mark Taper Forum following the dinner, and our guests and volunteers attended the invite-only performance. During dinner, attendees learned more about the mission of the Juvenile Arthritis Association from founders Joel Rothman and Laura Schultz, Board member Andreas Reiff, M.D., young adult JA advocate Jennifer Horonjeff and child advocate Jordan Lynne Howe.
