FARAFARA Cure FA

Funny 4 Funds 2016

2016Funny4Funds1Last July, nearly 200 people packed into a hot community hall to support the first Funny 4 Funds comedy show to support FARA. This year, the show was upgraded to the beautiful Crestwood Country Club in Rehoboth, MA, where the 200+ guests enjoyed sunset cocktails after a long week, a delicious dinner, hilarious comedy show, and exhilarating auctions. Proceeds from the event raised over $13,000 to support FARA! That’s a significant contribution to fund FA research and advance efforts towards a cure. 

2016Funny4Funds2Three Funny 4 Funds comedians performed a 90 minute show, leaving the room chuckling, hooting, cackling, and yes, even some snorting. It was a fun Friday night and a great kick-off to the summer fundraising season in RI, which culminates in the annual 5K “Race for Matt and Grace” in September. This year’s show was notably special as it coincided with the 35th birthday of my good friend Matt DiIorio. The star of the evening, Matt found his way into hundreds of pictures and enjoyed cake with family and friends. We are grateful to Matt, his family and friends for sharing his day with us at such an amazing event – and a big boost to FARA fundraising is always a welcome bonus!

Should you find yourself in the New England area this summer/fall, come join us at more fun events! Keep an eye out for dates and contact info on the FARA upcoming events page (HERE). See you soon!

The FARA Ambassador Program

The FARA Ambassador Program

The FARA Ambassadors are a united team of patient volunteers living with FA who are committed to supporting FARA in the search for a treatment and cure.
 
Together we seek to know more about FA, and FARA so we can be prepared to represent the community when the opportunity arises; speaking at events, to volunteers, potential donors, scientific groups, pharma partners, media interviews and other awareness and fundraising opportunities. We believe support is key to continued success toward our ultimate goal of treatment and a cure. Participants in the FARA Ambassador Program are passionate about building and upholding relationships within the FA community.
 
The FARA Ambassadors are positive, supportive, peer representatives for the FA community, actively raising awareness and funds for FARA. To learn more about the FARA Ambassador Program or to have a FARA Ambassador speak at your event, please contact: info@cureFA.org.
