Sunday, April 14, 2013 – 12 p.m.-4 p.m.

Kristin Rakshys is donating her 40th birthday in memory of her father, John Rakshys, who passed away from a ruptured brain anaeurysm in September 2012.

All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Brain Aneurysm Foundation (BAF). BAF is the world's only nonprofit organization solely dedicated to providing critical awareness, education, support and research funding to reduce the incidence of brain aneurysm ruptures. I was inspired to turn my birthday into a charity event by my dad's desire to always help others. He best expressed this in his last wish which was to be an organ donor. Because of his organ donor decision, he was able to help three individuals through the successful organ transplant of his liver and kidneys.

Discounted pricing is available for early registration and for hosting a full table (8 guests).
