3rd Annual Charity Benefit: Hippies for Huntington's

April 3, 2018

You are invited to join Oak & Velvet in our 3rd Annual Charity Benefit, April 28, 2018 from 7pm-midnight at our showroom! 

 

This year's focus is Huntington's Disease (HD). HD is a fatal genetic disorder that progressively breaks down nerve cells, causing physical and mental deterioration. The disease is known as the quintessential family disease because every child of a parent of HD has a 50% chance of carrying the gene. In the United States today, there are 30,000 symptomatic citizens and an additional 200,000 at risk. Currently there is no cure.

 

 

Onset symptoms appear in patients between ages 30-50 and worsen over a 10-25 year period. Symptoms include:

 

Mood swings, personality changes, and depression

Impaired judgment and forgetfulness

Unsteady gait and involuntary movements

Slurred speech, difficulty swallowing, and rapid weight loss

 

This year, our theme is Hippies for Huntington's, so come in your best bohemian hippie wear and you could be the lucky winner of a custom-made chair and matching ottoman! Tickets are $60 and includes dinner, drinks, and entertainment!

 

We hope to see you there!
