VIENNA, W.Va. (WTAP) The stars came out for a masquerade ball in Vienna to benefit a special woman, and a special cause.
Hundreds attended Anna's Army Movie Star Masquerade, on Saturday, and dressed up as Hollywood characters, and actors.

The Guest of Honor, Anna Gordon, suffers from Friedreich's Ataxia, a disease that targets the nervous system.
The money raised at the event goes towards the disease's Research Alliance.

Melissa Gordon, the mother of Anna Gordon, said, "The outpouring of this community is just overwhelming.
That's what brings me to my knees."

Anna Gordon, the Guest of Honor, said, "To have everyone here to celebrate.
This community...just...I want to celebrate them in the best way I know, and that's a party so that's what we are having.

Because of them, we are going to cure this disease."

Friedreich's Ataxia effects about one in 50,000 people in America.
