The National MS Society, Maryland Chapter is proud to announce the second annual Women on the Move event at the American Visionary Art Museum on Thursday, September 17, 2015 from 6 to 9 pm. Ober|Kaler Attorneys at Law is the presenting sponsor, with Baltimore Magazine, Symphony Placements, ComForcare Home Services, Dine Out Baltimore, Baltimore Marriott Waterfront, Danielle Nicole, CITYpeek and HeidNSeek as supporting sponsors. Featuring women-owned or inspired businesses, restaurants and caterers, the goal is to have 400 guests raise $40,000 in funds to support the fight against multiple sclerosis (MS). Last year’s inaugural event was a huge success, with more than 300 people sampling some of the best food in Baltimore.
Attendees can shop handbags, jewelry and other wares while sampling small plates and wine from women-led businesses in Maryland. Food partners that have already signed up for the event include: Anastasia, Birroteca, Classic Catering People, Clementine, Copper Kitchen, Flavor Cupcakery, Gitan BistroCru, Innovative Gourmet, Linwoods, Miss Shirley’s Café, Mouth Party Caramel, Ruth’s Chris Steak House,Sip Kitchen & Wine Bar, SoBo Cafe and many others.
“This event is an ideal fundraiser for MS as women are two to three times more likely to be diagnosedthan men. It is an event that has been organized by the women who serve on the MS Board of Trustees.” said Donna J. Senft, Principal at Ober|Kaler. “Fundraising efforts over the past decades have made possible 12 disease-modifying treatments to help those with MS live their best lives. Ober|Kaler is proud to support the MS Society’s goal of ending MS forever.”
Tickets for Women on the Move cost $75 per person and can be purchased at www.mswomenmd.org.
