All proceeds are split between two Non Profit Organizations:  Dysautonomia International & the Gastroparesis and Dysmotility (GPD) Foundation.

Dinner & dessert is provided.  A soup option is available, upon request, for those on a liquid diet.  All chicken served is halal.  If there are additional food restrictions, please contact Dalia Chokr ASAP (dchokr@gmail.com).
