The University of Kansas MS Achievement Center is gearing up to provide lots of grins and giggles in support of a great cause during its upcoming fundraiser, Eat Bid Laugh, set for Oct. 10 at 7 p.m.
Benefitting MS Achievement Center programs and resources for people with progressed MS, the annual event is going virtual this year, featuring personal stories and insights from members, a raffle with a twist and a silent auction. Comedian Rik Roberts will bring the laughs during a comedy show to close the evening.
Tickets range from $50 to $200 and come with party kits for two, four and eight people. Party kits include:
- Access to the livestream
- Event t-shirts
- A drink kit
- Paper goods
- Other items
For an additional charge, participants can add a dinner and dessert package, one of only 100 golden raffle tickets to win a unique prize and extra event t-shirts. There also is a free option for access to the video livestream only.
"While there is nothing better than being together, these times call for creativity and flexibility, and we're pleased to gather in a new way this year," said Judy Markwardt-Oberheu, executive director of the MS Achievement Center.
"This remains a night to celebrate the resilience of our members and to ensure the future of the MS Achievement Center's ability to support people with progressed MS," she said. "We hope you'll join us to hear how members have adapted to the challenges of the pandemic and discover the many opportunities for you to support them and other individuals with progressed MS."
One of only six similar programs in the nation, the MS Achievement Center provides weekly physical and occupational therapy, cognitive stimulation activities and emotional wellness programming designed to enhance the quality of life for people with progressed MS.
