In his never-ending pursuit to help his community, Dr. Robert B Stanton is joining the fight against Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) by donating a Zoom Whitening Treatment, buying tickets to the Gala and participating in the auction. The money raised from his donations will support research to find a cure for SMA and help local children in Fort Lauderdale with the disease.
Dr. Robert Stanton and other prominent figures of South Florida will get together at the Gala of Hope to raise awareness and donations.

Proceeds from the Gala of Hope will benefit Families of SMA, the leading research organization.
“I was blessed with two healthy children, so I feel an obligation to help others who are less fortunate, especially when the organization is led by such amazing people as the Israel family” Said Dr. Robert B Stanton
