Join The Emily Program Foundation for unmaskED on March 7
By Darcy Berus, The Emily Program Foundation development officer
Raising awareness about eating disorders and body image issues is important to all of us at The Emily Program.
Toward this end, we are excited to invite the community to join us for The Emily Program Foundation 2nd Annual unmaskED Gala on Saturday, March 7, at 6:00 p.m. at the Muse Event Center in Minneapolis.
This year's unmaskED Gala will feature live and silent auctions, dinner from CRAVE, Emcee Colleen Lindstrom, and entertainment by The Bruce A. Henry Band.
Dedicated to "unmasking" the secrecy, stigma, and shame associated with eating disorders (ED), this festive fundraising event will benefit The Emily Program Foundation and its mission to save lives, change minds, and eliminate eating disorders.
Through education programs in classrooms and communities, seminars, Friends and Family Support Groups, forums, advocacy and outreach, the Foundation increases awareness for eating disorders and body image issues among adults, children and youth. The Foundation also advances citizen lobbying and public policymaking efforts, and advocates for greater access to care, research, and improved prevention methods.
Last year, the Foundation educated over 6,800 students, as well as teachers, administrators, health care providers, and others by delivering 300 community and school programs. Funds raised from the Gala will be used to support these and other important education and community outreach initiatives.
