New Genes for Harry - Launch Event - May 19th

  • Firehouse Grill 750 Chicago Avenue Evanston, IL, 60202 United States (map)

We are super excited to Launch our new Foundation - New Genes,Inc.

Our family have created the Foundation and this event to raise funds to address childhood diseases that can benefit from Gene Therapy.

Our launch event on May 19th, 2018 will kick off our mission by raising money to continue to fund Research and Gene Therapy clinical trial development for Juvenile Batten Disease - a disease our son was tragically diagnosed with in October 2016.

It's a serious cause but it's going to be a fun night cause that's what it takes to raise money in these circumstances!

Expect food, drinks, live music, DJ Chas, a paddle raise, silent auction brimming with goodies and some karaoke mixed throughout!

Wear your best pair of jeans and add a splash (or a lot!) of ORANGE!

Please come and support New Genes, Inc...because there is nothing worse than a bad pair of genes!
