Announcing The Great MS Dine Out 2018
Nonprofit teams up with local restaurants in support of National MS Education and Awareness Month®
By: Multiple Sclerosis Foundation
"This will be our inaugural year for The Great MS Dine Out," said Charlie Myrick, Director of Corporate Development for the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation. "MS Focus offers vital and much-needed programs and services to the MS community. Restaurants are incredibly important to communities around the country, and partnering with them will be an excellent way to spread MS awareness and awareness of our programs and services, as well as providing publicity and community goodwill for our partners."
The Great MS Dine Out event will take place nationwide. "There will be multiple participation tiers, so restaurants small and large are encouraged to take part," Myrick added. Through the event, participating restaurants will agree to donate a certain amount of their day's proceeds, either a percentage or a lump sum, to help fund the programs and services that MS Focus offers in communities around the country. "We will provide promotional materials, and the different tiers come with special benefits provided by MS Focus," Myrick said. "For us, March is about coming together with communities around the country in a joint effort, not to just tell people about multiple sclerosis, but to let them know that we are out here fighting for them. Through this new initiative, we are showing communities that help can come from anywhere, even their favorite restaurant."
