On Friday November 6th, our partner Epilepsy Foundation New England, held its annual gala. Unlike previous years, COVID effected plans and the event was held remotely. Rather than having a keynote presentation and fundraising events at the gala, the fundraising work was done in advance and EFNE exceeded their goals. In the virtual atmosphere, they paid tribute to service providers, engaged in important conversation about epilepsy, and heard stories of hope from people living with epilepsy.
As part of the event a corporate sponsor, UCB, discussed their support for those with epilepsy, including a discussion of their support for Sail For Epilepsy. Thank you UCB and EFNE for being such great shipmates with Sail For Epilepsy!
