When: Saturday October 24, 2020, 6:30 - 10:30 pm
Where: Theater On The Lake in Chicago, located at 2401 N. Lakeshore Drive; at Fullerton Ave, on the lakefront just east of Lakeshore Drive.
DETAILS: Gratitude fills our hearts as we reach a decade serving the epilepsy community in Danny's memory. Due to the generosity of our supporters, we have assisted families facing epilepsy spanning all 50 states and 13 countries. Yet, there remains a huge unmet need, and we look to increase our impact in the years ahead. This night of charity will allow us to continue on our mission to prevent deaths caused by seizures.
Please join us on the shore of Lake Michigan to celebrate progress against Epilepsy and SUDEP and to raise funds to support the millions of families who face the uncertainty, fear and isolation that can accompany life with seizures. The dollars we raise will change lives for the better.
Format: Cocktails and small plates; a silent auction and a fund-a-need special appeal; live music from the Whitney Young High School Jazz Ensemble. We are proud to welcome Alex Maragos of NBC5 as our emcee.
