FACES and the NYU Langone Comprehensive Epilepsy Center are enormously grateful for the overwhelming support of the FACES Gala 2023. The evening was a celebration of the resilience and spirit of the FACES community – people with epilepsy, their families and friends, volunteers, physicians and scientists.
We owe the success of this year’s gala to all of those who lent their support by attending, giving a contribution, taking a digital journal ad, donating or purchasing auction items, and volunteering. Over 600 people attended the event, and FACES raised over $5 million dollars!
These funds will directly benefit a wide scope of pioneering research, provide unparalleled patient care, and support ancillary programs that help lessen the burden of epilepsy for patients and their families, including the Parent Network, the FACES Apartments, the Dr. Blanca Vazquez Summer Camp Scholarship, and the FACES College Scholarship. It also allows us to offer cost-free events such as Game Day, our Peace of Mind Lecture series, and the annual Epilepsy Conference.
Thanks go out to the entire FACES community and all they do to move our mission forward.
