Ehrlich Bariatrics, a leading weight loss surgery center in Connecticut, will be hosting their first cabaret gala dinner event to support the Obesity Action Coalition (OAC) on Thursday, June 6th and Friday, June 7th at 7:00 p.m. Located at Vazzano’s Four Seasons, 337 Kenyon Street, Stratford, CT. The show will be entitled True Love Doesn’t Weight and will feature great American love songs performed by a talented cast of high school and college students. Attendees will enjoy a healthy and delicious dinner prepared by chef John Lepper.
Founded in 2005, The Obesity Action Coalition (OAC) has made it their mission to provide access to safe and efficient obesity treatment options, raise awareness, and dismiss stigma and negative bias about obesity. With over 93 million obese Americans, it is important to address this growing epidemic. According to ongoing studies, adults struggling with obesity have a higher risk for developing diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and having a stroke. The OAC works with legislators, local government, health centers, and individuals to increase awareness and ensure obesity is treated seriously and represented fairly.
Through the voices of our youth and by the creative direction of co-founders Nancy Lessard and Scott Sisbarro, Ehrlich Bariatrics and OAC will help to raise awareness about the rise of obesity in the United States. “Our charity gala True Love Doesn’t Weight is an opportunity to support our local community in the fight against obesity,” says Dr. Timothy Ehrlich. Individual tickets for the event are $50 each, or tables of ten seats are available for purchase at $500. Each ticket includes dinner, show, taxes, and gratuities; a cash bar will also be available. Items to be raffled off are also being accepted to raise funds for the OAC.
