FARAFARA Cure FA

"Ghouls Night Out"

GhoulsNightOut“Ghouls Night Out” was the theme for this year’s Piccadilly Gala and Ladies Night Out in Clinton, Missouri. The annual event raises funds to support the downtown decorations, landscapes, etc. Each year, a charity or cause is selected to benefit as well, and this year, FARA was chosen. On Tuesday, October 11, over 300 women gathered to raise money in a big way. Thirteen pumpkins were decorated for the evenings “Pumpkin Palooza” and auctioned off. With the city’s generous women, these 13 pumpkins raised $1,800 for FARA in their efforts to find a cure. 

It's always wonderful to see people open their hearts, and to be living in a community that did so, is just icing on the cake. I was expecting each pumpkin to bring maybe $20 and I was excited about that. After all, over 300 more individuals now know about FA than before. I was shocked when the first pumpkin sold for over $75, but they just went up from there!

I am proud to live in such a supportive, giving community. Thank you, Clinton!

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.
