Paint The Pumpkin Purple For SUDEP Awareness
Organized by: Roseanne Murphy
EVENT DATE Oct 11, 2014
This is an event to benefit The Patrick Ring Foundation. My daughter in law, Jen Ring Murphy lost her brother Patrick to SUDEP. Patrick was 29 years old when he suddenly died in February 2014 of SUDEP- sudden unexpected death in epilepsy. Jen and her family created the foundation to raise awareness of this little known outcome of epilepsy for young adults like Patrick. I would like to raise funds to purchase pumpkins and supplies for the "Paint The Pumpkin Purple Event" on 10/11/14. Purple is the banner color for epilepsy and those children & their families participating in the event will decorate their own purple pumpkins and will also be able to order pumpkins as well. If we can raise the money to purchase the pumpkins then the fees paid by the participants can be donated fully to The Patrick Ring Foundation.
