The vision is to ensure that not another moment is lost to seizures. The gala provides critical funds that enable the EFNC to:

  • Provide direct, educational services to people struggling with epilepsy
  • Send youth with epilepsy to summer camp
  • Connect families with epilepsy to other similar families
  • Coordinate 15 local support groups
  • Support advocacy and legislative initiatives
  • Educate schools, hospitals, first responders and businesses about epilepsy
  • Support epilepsy research

The Candlelight Gala would not be possible without our wonderful volunteers!
