MSAA’S 2017 Improving Lives Benefit
The staff members here at the Multiple Sclerosis Association of America are preparing for this year’s Improving Lives Benefit next month, where supporters from across the country join us for the night to celebrate the accomplishments of MSAA champions in the MS community.
This year, our honorees are:
- Shana Stern (MSAA Art Showcase Artist) – Diagnosed with MS in 1999, Shana has adapted her style of painting and creating art, as new symptoms and challenges presented themselves. She has been an active participant in our Art Showcase since 2013.
- Walker Reynolds (Swim for MS Volunteer) – Inspired by his mother Shana Stern’s determination and creative spirit, Walker wanted to give back to the MS community and did so by raising more than $1,800 for MSAA as a Swim for MS Volunteer participant.
- William Saunders (MSAA Board of Directors’ Treasurer & Founder of Meeteetse Advisors) – Having served as the MSAA Board of Directors’ Treasurer for 8 years, William has been instrumental in helping the organization improve more lives in the MS community by supporting MSAA’s mission.
MSAA’s Improving Lives Benefit will be held on Thursday, March 30, 2017 in Philadelphia, PA at The Downtown Club. If you are interested in attending, learn more at support.mymsaa.org/benefit.
While not everyone is able to make it to Philadelphia to help us honor these MSAA champions, anyone can participate in our national online auction that features a number of exciting items, like a scenic trip on the Alaska Railroad or Firefly Music Festival passes! Information on auction packages, which include a variety of starting bids, is available here.
How well do people around you understand MS?
