We are celebrating our 11th Annual Party For A Cure on June 7th, 2019 at Turf Valley Resort. We are excited to have Denise Koch of WJZ TV as our Mistress of Ceremonies. Last year we raised nearly $130,000 thanks to your continued support.

We are empowered to support the event to help find a cure for muscular dystrophy, to fund summer camp activities and quality of life needs. But, we need your help. To better understand how your contributions are applied, please learn more here on our website. A $1,000 contribution, for example, helps pay for research and development costs and $2,000 helps cover the entire cost to send one child to MDA’s summer camp.

MDA summer camp offers something for every child, no matter what his or her level of mobility. Beyond research and camp, Party For A Cure uses proceeds to help make our kids’ homes handicap accessible and fund medical durable equipment. A replacement battery for their specialized wheelchairs can cost up to $2,000. In 2018, contractors donated labor and materials to provide new handicap ramps and in-home access – up to 200,000 in labor and materials. PFAC continues to pay for extensive van repairs, service dog and their training costs, cell phones, remodeling costs for new bathrooms, and much more.

This event again promises to be a first-class, highly-visible fundraiser which will feature a 5-piece band ensemble, gourmet food, fine spirits, a silent auction, and an opportunity to network and enjoy an elegant evening at Turf Valley.  Tickets and event sponsorship, along with special pricing for your hotel stay at Turf Valley will remain at 2018 pricing. Links to make on-line purchase will be coming soon.

Your generosity is needed and vital to the preservation of our mission. Please join us for an evening of hope to benefit “our” children and their families, some of whom will be attending the event.

Very Sincerely Yours, Karen Barbour
