The Epilepsy Foundation of Florida (EFOF) will host a fundraising event, ‘Purple Hat Night Out’, on Thursday, November 9 from 6 to 9 p.m. at Grateful Palate (3003 NE 32nd Ave., Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33308). It will take place during National Epilepsy Awareness Month, an annual period dedicated to educating individuals and communities about epilepsy.
The cocktail-themed event will feature a purple carpet entrance where attendees are encouraged to wear and showcase purple hats to raise epilepsy awareness. Designer hats, donated by Whittall & Shon, will be displayed at the event. Other event highlights include a silent auction, live music, DJ, and a special “gallery style” display of art created by children with epilepsy who participated in an EFOF summer camp sponsored by Ronald McDonald House Charities this past summer.
Epilepsy, a common neurological condition that one in 26 people will be diagnosed with at some point in their lives, is a diagnosis given when a person experiences two or more seizures that cannot be attributed to another cause. It is a disorder more people live with than autism, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis and cerebral palsy – combined.
‘Purple Hat Night Out’ tickets can be purchased for $50 each or $100 for a VIP ticket; all tickets include Hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. To learn more about the event and register, visit: http://www.efof.org/events/purplehat/.
