EPILEPSY FOUNDATION OF COLORADO INTRODUCES

A NEW AWARENESS EVENT

 

Denver, CO, September 17, 2008 -- The Epilepsy Foundation of Colorado (EFCO) is introducing a statewide, grassroots awareness event called Night of 1000 Dinners.

 

Epilepsy impacts 43,000 children and adults living in Colorado.  This is more than cerebral palsy, MS and Parkinson’s disease, combined.  This is a staggering figure. Combine this with the families, friends and co-workers touched by epilepsy and epilepsy is one of the most prevalent, pressing conditions in Colorado.

 

Night of 1000 Dinners is an event that invites a broad range of supporters to host individual dinners or casual game nights in their homes (or at a local restaurant), inviting friends, families and co-workers to learn more about epilepsy.  It is designed to be fun, upbeat and result in greater awareness and understanding about this misunderstood neurological disorder.

 

Because November is Epilepsy Awareness Month, EFCO has selected November for this special event. 

 

Dinners will be as diverse as the hosts, ranging from pizza and beer parties to wine tasting or catered dinner affairs.  The Epilepsy Foundation of Colorado will provide printed invitations, e-mail invites and e-mail blasts, educational materials and a short educational DVD hosts can pop into their televisions during the evening if they choose.  Guests will leave having a greater understanding about epilepsy and the good work the Epilepsy Foundation of Colorado provides.

 

This new event is a meaningful way to reach across the entire state of Colorado and engage caring, committed volunteers, donors and board members to make difference.

 

Host a dinner and make a difference!

 

The Epilepsy Foundation of Colorado is available to answer any questions at (303) 377-9774 or www.epilepsycolorado.org.
