Thank you to everyone who attended the 2015 On the Move Luncheon, we raised a record-breaking $437,000!
This year’s On the Move Luncheon was a roaring success with a record-breaking number of attendees and donations to help people affected by MS live their best lives. Thank you to the nearly 1,000 attendees who raised an incredible $437,000! This year’s sponsors also took their support to the next level, covering the entire cost of the event so 100% of donations made at the Luncheon go directly towards supporting innovative programs and services, as well as funding cutting-edge research that boldly pursues every promising avenue to STOP MS in its tracks, RESTORE what has been lost, and END MS forever.
We had a great presentation up on the stage this year led by Seattle’s own Dennis Bounds of King 5 News.
Bill Condon, a great supporter of the Luncheon and the Chapter, received the Luncheon Leadership Award.
