About the Gala

The Epilepsy Foundation’s annual formal gala has become a favorite of all who attend. On Saturday, September 6, 2014, the Valley’s elite will gather at The Wrigley Mansion to support the Foundation’s 9th annual gala.

The Epilepsy Foundation of Arizona has a rich history of providing innovative and award-winning programs for those diagnosed with epilepsy, including Studio-E, Teens Speak Up, and a yearly camp for kids, Camp Candlelight. The Foundation also provides supportive services through Empowerment Groups and awareness via trainings on epilepsy and first aid, as well as seminars to all affected by epilepsy.

Events like the annual gala are vital to funding the many programs and services offered by the Foundation. As a sponsor, our guests will forever be associated with the services the Foundation provides.

About Epilepsy

A person is diagnosed with epilepsy once they have had two or more unprovoked seizures. More than 2 million people in the United States and 65 million people worldwide are affected by epilepsy, and an estimated 150,000 people will be diagnosed with the disorder in the United States this year alone.

Despite all available treatments, four out of 10 people with epilepsy continue to experience uncontrolled seizures, while many more experience less than optimal seizure control. One in every ten Americans has had, or will have, at least one seizure during their lifetime.
