Raising Funds for MS in New York’s Greenwich Village Tonight


With Manhattan’s weather being so very challenging, why not spend a cool, fun evening helping to raise money for an important cause!



The News Corporation is presenting its 28th Annual Summertime Party to help raise funds for The National Multiple Sclerosis Society.  The event will be taking place on Thursday, July 26th, 2012 at a brand new venue, The Greenwich Village Country Club at Bowlmor Lanes in the heart of Union Square.  The event is from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. and the ticket price includes 3 hours of a premium open bar, fun food, access to all activities including a 9 hole mini golf course and of course, a lot of bowling lanes!  In addition, there’ll be a silent auction, raffles with cool fun prizes and great live music!

So what is Multiple Sclerosis?

Multiple Sclerosis is said to be a chronic autoimmune disease that attacks the central nervous system which affects one’s brain, spinal cord, and the nerve fibers to the eyes.  Autoimmune disorders happen when a person’s immune system, which normally is supposed to protect the body actually otherwise attacks and destroys the body’s healthy tissue.  When that happens and the covering of the body’s nerve fibers are damaged then nerve impulses are interrupted and one will experience the symptoms of the disease.

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society will be the recipient of the funds raised on the 26th.  The Society is a group of passionate individuals who want to create a world free of MS.  In that dedicated spirit, The Society helps each person with MS address their daily challenges through their 50 state “chapter” network.  The Society does this by funding cutting-edge research, drives change through advocacy, facilitates professional education and provides programs and services that help people with MS and their families to move their lives forward!
