Go Red for Women is the American Heart Association’s national movement to end heart disease and stroke in women. Cardiovascular disease causes one in three women’s deaths each year, killing a woman every minute. In fact, more women than men die every year from heart disease and stroke. The good news is that 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented with education and lifestyle changes. Go Red for Women advocates for more research and swifter action, and inspires women to take charge of their heart health. Join the fight against heart disease by visiting DetroitGoRedForWomen.org.

BOCCE PALOOZA @ Palazzo Di Bocce
Feb 17 @ 6:00 pm – 11:00 pm

The Mary and Charles A. Parkhill Foundation for Spinal Cord Rehabilitation was founded to raise funds for therapy scholarships to be granted to individuals suffering from Spinal Cord Injuries (SCI) and Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI). While scientists, doctors and researchers around the world seek a cure for spinal cord and other neurological injuries, the responsibility of rehabilitation therapists is to keep those with spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries healthy and fit until a cure is found, or in a lifetime of fitness.

Unfortunately, there are injured individuals without the healthcare benefits or private resources required for ongoing therapy and exercise. Donations to the Mary and Charles A. Parkhill Foundation for Spinal Cord Rehabilitation will make it possible for people (without other resources) to get vital physical and occupational therapy services they need and the hope that goes along with striving for and reaching goals.

To fund our scholarships, we are planning Bocce Palooza XI, our eleventh annual event. We owe thanks to our previous event sponsors and supporters for our continued success at Bocce Palooza. Thanks to their generosity, we have raised over $500,000 since inception, and awarded nearly 60 grants to provide therapy to individuals without the resources to procure the much needed and essential services to achieve optimal independence and quality of life. We are reaching out to you in hopes of obtaining event sponsorship.

Bocce Palooza XI is set for Saturday, February 17, 2018. We’ll continue the popular Bocce tournament (and awarding of The Googasian Cup), and, of course, food and drink. We also plan to have some of the grantees with us.

We invite you to sponsor this year’s event. Please review the opportunities. If you are interested in sponsorship, we’d like to hear from you as soon as possible so we can include your identity on promotions.

Please feel free to contact Polly Swingle or me at The Recovery Project (734-953-1745), or Stephanie Villalobos, our sponsor liaison, at svillalobos@therecoveryproject.net for more information or to sign up.
