NEW YORK, Dec. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2007 S.L.E. Lupus Foundation's "Life Without Lupus" Gala raised more than $3.2 million for lupus, a national record for funds collected at a single event to support education, provide services, and nurture research for the chronic and often devastating autoimmune illness.
