The MSCIA to host a “Spring Gala” to help raise much needed funds that will allow them to continue to provide FREE resources to individuals with spinal cord injury and disease.

Empowering and Enhancing the Lives of Individuals with Spinal Cord Injury or Disease

This event is one not to be missed!

The event will take place on Thursday, April 18, 2013 at Club Venetian in Madison Heights and we are encouraging all community members to attend. The organization is hoping to share their passion of promoting advocacy, education and research with the community for individuals with spinal cord injury and disease.

Every day more than 30 people become paralyzed from a spinal cord injury or the progression of a spinal cord disease. The majority of these people rely on wheelchairs for mobility assistance and in turn, they face many barriers and obstacles in everyday life. “The mission of the MSCIA is to enhance and empower the lives of those with spinal cord injury and disease through advocacy, education and medical research,” states Greg Jamian, MSCIA President. “The MSCIA aims to ensure that individuals affected by spinal cord injury and disease achieve and maintain the highest levels of independence, health and personal fulfillment.”

All donations and sponsorships collected from this event will go towards supporting special programs designed by the MSCIA to benefit those with spinal cord injury and disease, throughout the entire state of Michigan. These special programs include support groups for patients and families, resource guides and advocacy initiatives for 2013. The MSCIA is one of the most active chapters in the country of the National Spinal Cord Injury Association.

“This event is one not to be missed,” said Karynn Sheeter, Managing Director for the MSCIA. “We are proud to say that we have over 15 major sponsors for this event and have a silent auction with some amazing items, including Red Wings and Detroit Tigers Memorabilia, along with donations from ABC Warehouse. It’s great to see that we have such an outstanding support system for individuals with spinal cord injury or disease in our state and we hope that community members will join us in our passion for the cause.”

“Our last event sold out early, but there are currently still seats available for this event,” said Sheeter. Tickets for this event are available for purchase at $100 each or $80 for members of the Michigan Spinal Cord Injury Association. Tables of eight are also available for purchase at $700.    

To purchase tickets please contact Karynn Sheeter at 248-388-2270 or visit http://www.mispinalcord.org/mscia-spring-gala. Tickets are available for purchase until April 12, 2013.
