Dear friend of the Epilepsy Foundation of Northern California,

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Epilepsy Foundation of Northern California and myself, we would like to invite you to SAVE THE DATE for our yearly Gala Fundraiser that will take place on November 2nd at the Rock Wall Winery in Alameda, CA.

This year, more than ever, we are seeking your attendance and support to help us raise funds to support the Epilepsy Community in Northern California. 2019 has been an important year building the base for a strong growth plan and to increase the services for our community.

As in past years, we have focused our efforts in creating awareness and education through our Seizure First Aid Training Program, supported families and newly diagnosed patients through our Peer 2 Peer mentoring program, as well as multiple educational events through our Living with Epilepsy Seminars.

Camp Coelho filled quickly once again and it is clear that there is a need for more camps in Northern California. We are very close to have the resources needed to add a second camp for children in 2020 and a family camp in 2021. Your participation and donations at the Gala will put us one-step closer to make our dreams reality.

The event will take place in Alameda, CA at the Rock Wall Winery, centrally located in the Bay Area and easily accessibly with free parking for all. Multiple hotel options are easily found in Alameda as well as in Oakland and Jack London area. We are going to have an entertaining evening with excellent food and wine and incredible auction items.

Don’t wait too long! Purchase a ticket here.
If you cannot attend we would like to invite you to donate towards our cause, every dollar will be used to increase our resources to support the epilepsy community.
Thank you and we hope to see you there.
