FALL 2013 GREATER SACRAMENTO: PROGRAMS & SERVICES IN YOUR COMMUNITY YOU CAN HELP CREATE A WORLD FREE OF MS As we work towards our collective goal of a world free of MS, the Northern California Chapter is lucky to have volunteers across all 40 counties planning their own fundraisers to raise money and awareness in their individual communities. These Do It Yourself (DIY) fundraisers vary from golf tournaments to lemonade stands, pumpkin chucking contests to whiffle ball tournaments. There really are no limits. Amy, a Self-Help Group Leader in Chico is planning the 2nd Annual MS Soiree on Friday, November 8th at the Chico Women’s Club. The $10 cost of the ticket will go to the National MS Society and gives attendees access to popular local bands, solo artists, food from a local food truck, wine from Counter Punch Wines and beer from Sierra Nevada Brewery. There will also be a raffle for framed photography from local artists as well as Klean Kanteen products. The Women’s Club has a maximum capacity of 350 which Amy hopes to fill. The Soiree will showcase many local talents while raising money and awareness of MS. Tickets will be sold at the door.
