Posted: Updated: Oct 11, 2012 11:11 PM

Hundreds of people turned out in support of the Muscular Dystrophy Association during the Gift of Hope Gala on Thursday.

The MDA held an auction and dinner to celebrate research for muscular dystrophy.

FOX 12's Shauna Parsons emceed the event. Others from FOX 12 also went out to show support at the event, which was sponsored by The Old Spaghetti Factory.

The restaurant raised nearly a half million dollars for the MDA by selling donation shamrocks.

The MDA also honored KPTV for its 40-year partnership with the organization.
