The Muscular Dystrophy Association would like to invite you to be a part of the 2013 Passport to a Cure Gala. This social event is themed "Casino Royale" and it benefits over 800 families from the Southwest Louisiana MDA. This exclusive event will include entertainment, food, fun, and a great casino atmosphere and is scheduled for Saturday, November 16, 2013 at Cypress Bayou Casino & Hotel.
The great part is that all money raised locally, stays locally to help families in the 13 parish Southwest Louisiana area.
*MDA is a non-profit health agency dedicated to research on over 43 neuromuscular diseases including ALS. We provide services such as wheel chair repair, support group, clinic, flu shots, etc. to our families free of charge. And, our biggest and best service is the MDA summer camp.
MDA summer camp is a barrier-free week of camp for children with MD provided to them completely free of charge. They are assigned their own personal counselor that helps them with their daily activities as well as a variety of camp activities such as horseback riding, swimming, fishing, football, etc. This year, we had over 100 children from South Louisiana attend MDA summer camp.
