EVENT DATE: Thursday, October 19, 2017
EVENT: Charlotte Dysautonomia Awareness Fundraiser
TIME: 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM
LOCATION: Carolina Ale House 201 S College St #100 in Charlotte, NC
Imagine one morning waking up feeling like you have the flu, but you never recover. You lose your ability to return to your daily life – driving, socializing with friends, being able to go to work or school, even taking a shower on your own. Then imagine being told by a doctor that this will be a lifelong illness with no effective treatments and no cure.
These are common realities of those who suffer from DYSAUTONOMIA, a group of neurological disorders that impact the autonomic nervous system, affecting approximately 70 million people worldwide. Even though dysautonomia is fairly common, it can take many years for patients to get diagnosed due to a lack of awareness amongst the public and within the medical profession. With your help, we can improve the lives of people living with dysautonomia and strive for a cure!
Please join us on October 19, 2017 to celebrate Dysautonomia Awareness Month and raise money for Dysautonomia International to help research for a cure. The Wells Fargo Duke Energy Center will be lighting up in turquoise in honor of Dysautonomia Awareness!
6:30 – 8:30 PM
Enjoy our Evening Activities:
- 50/50 Raffle

The funds raised from this event will be donated to Dysautonomia International, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Their mission is to identify the causes and cures for all forms of dysautonomia, and to enhance the quality-of-life of people currently living with these illnesses.
