Annual gala fund raising evening set for March 8th

Denver, CO– The Epilepsy Foundation of Colorado will present its annual fund raising Gala on Saturday,
March 8th, 2014 at the historic Brown Palace Hotel in downtown Denver. The evening will begin at 6:00 p.m. with hosted cocktails and a silent auction, followed by dinner, a live auction, and dancing to Moment’s Notice.

This year’s event, Today’s Belle Époque, is being planned by a passionate committee of volunteers led by chairwoman, Kate Petrocco. The black-tie optional evening will elegantly convey the French era of innovation and invention in a modern-day setting, while honoring all those who live with epilepsy, as well as those who are making strides to find a cure.

The event’s Honorary Chairman is Warren Lammert, a leader in the national epilepsy community. A former
Denver resident, Mr. Lammert is the chairman of the board for the Epilepsy Foundation of America, and cofounder of the Epilepsy Therapy Project and He also serves on the board of directors of FACES (Finding a Cure for Epilepsy and Seizures) at New York University.

Table sponsorships and individual tickets are available. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Epilepsy Foundation of Colorado and its programs including education and outreach efforts, support and referral services, new and integrative therapies, and the Jason Fleishman Summer Camp.
