Other Ways to Get Involved:
During the year they reach out to artists and the community to procure items for their only fundraising event - an annual charity auction & dinner.
They need help using social media to promote their work and to share research efforts to those with FSHD muscular dystrophy. They need a team of volunteers to help run the gala - volunteers help with their silent auction set up and the closing, selling raffle tickets, interacting with supporters, and being sure the gala runs as planned.
