5th Annual Find-a-Cure Event raises $30,000!
 
On Thursday, April 21, over 75 people gathered for good food, good spirits and a good cause. Family, friends, and colleagues joined hosts Kelly & Mark Klafter and Lynn & Mike Briggs at the 5th annual Find a Cure fundraiser at the Olde Blind Dog in Milton, Georgia. Proceeds raised from the event supported the EHK Research Fund at the FIRST. The Klafter’s son and the Briggs’ grandson, Adam, is affected with EHK, a rare skin disease that causes excessive scaling, blisters, infections, and painful movement.
 
The fund raiser generated greater awareness and raised $30,000 to support the EHK Research Fund. 
 
The evening featured a presentation from Dr. Dennis Roop, the country’s leading scientist and expert on EHK research, a silent auction and two upscale raffles for a one-week vacation in Big Sky Montana or a deep-sea fishing trip in Costa Rica. Each trip included roundtrip airfare for four donated by Delta Airlines.
 
The Klafter’s and Briggs’ are very grateful to their family and friends for their generous support and contributions to help find a cure. Special thanks to Ron Wallace and his team at the Olde Blind Dog for their hospitality and generosity.
