First — Thank you for wanting to host a fundraiser to benefit the EAWCP! We appreciate you raising funds and awareness for those affected by epilepsy/seizure disorders.
Hosting your own fundraiser is a great way to raise awareness about epilepsy and the mission of the EAWCP, which is “to improve the quality of life for persons with epilepsy/seizure disorders and to dispel the myths, stigmas, and misunderstandings associated with epilepsy.” We call this a third-party event. A third-party event is an activity hosted by an outside party to raise money on behalf of the Epilepsy Association of Western and Central PA.
To assist you in your event planning, the EAWCP has developed guidelines to help make your event successful.
