Welcome to the Brain Injury Association of America’s inaugural Luminary of the Year program!

Sponsorship Packages Available Now!

The Luminary of the Year initiative is an exciting new fundraising campaign that supports BIAA and our mission to improve the quality of life of people affected by brain injury. By participating in the Luminary of the Year campaign, you’ll be helping us work toward a world where everyone who sustains a brain injury is recognized, treated, and accepted.

On Friday, November 15, 2024, at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., attendees and honorees alike will have the opportunity to hear stories of resolve, determination, and compassion from the brain injury community. This inspiring, mission-focused event includes a cocktail reception, dinner, auction, and a Fund the Mission Moment.

In addition to celebrating the dedicated fundraisers who help make BIAA’s work possible, our first-ever Luminary of the Year event will also honor Marilyn Price Spivack, founder of the Brain Injury Association of America, for the incredible contributions she has made to the brain injury community.
