Find a Cure Event - Georgia (2010)

Atlanta holds "Find a Cure" event

Ron Wallace and Mike Briggs enjoy the evening.
Foundation Board member Mike Briggs, grandfather of 8-year-old Adam who is affected with EHK, called on his friends and family to join him to help find a cure for ichthyosis.

Mike partnered with Ron Wallace, co-owner of The Olde Blind Dog Irish Pub in Milton, Georgia, to create this fun and friend-filled evening. 

Friends and family answered the call on Thursday evening, April 8.  Forty people joined Mike for great food and socializing.  Mike's son-in-law and Adam's father, Mark Klafter, provided the participants with an update on important research being conducted on EHK in Colorado by Dennis Roop, Phd.

More than $10,000 was raised during this terrific evening.  FIRST is very appreciative to Mike, Ron and all of the participants for their generosity.
