Chapter Fundraising Events

Chicago Summit of Strength

Please join us on Saturday, November 3, 2018 for the Chicago Summit of Strength at the Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile. The Summit of Strength Program is a local event uniting the SMA community around treatment, care, and support. As a national organization comprised of 34 chapters, we know it’s important to leverage our collective strength and provide our community with personalized, local support.

Through the Summit of Strength Program, the SMA community will expand efforts to share experiences, advocate for one another, and learn about the latest advances in treatment, care, and support. Please visit the event website for more details and the agenda.

Evening of Hope in Honor of Cameron Lily Shish

Please join us for the Cure SMA Evening of Hope in honor of Cameron Lily Shish at the Oakbrook Bath and Tennis Club on Thursday, November 1, 2018.

The evening will include heavy appetizers, open bar, a silent auction, and the opportunity to mingle and dance!

The Evening of Hope is a fundraising event with one goal: to provide family scholarships for the 2019 Annual SMA Conference where affected families learn about the most current research, care and support available.
