Mount Laurel, NJ --- On Tuesday (Nov. 8), Pacing For The Cure will be hosting a fundraising dinner party at the Best Western Premier Hotel and Conference Center in Harrisburg, Pa., with proceeds from the event benefitting Multiple Sclerosis survivors.

Pacing For The Cure is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization with a mission to inspire others to join our cause, create hope for MS survivors, and believe that a cure will be found. Pacing For The Cure raises funds to support MS survivors' medical equipment needs and the necessary research to find a cure.

The scheduled event will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a cocktail reception and hors d’oeuvres until 7:30 p.m. Janine Gesek, Pacing For The Cure president, will kick off the dinner beginning at 7:30 p.m. with a brief video documentary and introduction to one family’s MS struggle followed by a MS research update from world renowned MS researcher Dr. Jeffrey Greenstein.

Dr. Greenstein’s life work has been dedicated to curing MS and he founded the Philadelphia, Pa.-based Multiple Sclerosis Research Institute to find the cause, stop the progression and cure this disease.

The dinner buffet begins at 8 p.m. and features a great selection of entrees, a beef carving station, beverages and premier dessert bar. There will also be live entertainment provided by a local DJ, Sam with Klock Entertainment, and dancing until 11:30 p.m.

The event will also feature a silent auction from 8-10 p.m. with great items for purchase and a Pacing For The Cure merchandise display.

The Pacing For The Cure dinner is a perfect event for all the harness racing fans, owners, trainers, drivers, and breeding farm personnel to come relax and have fun after a long day at the Harrisburg sale. Attendees will enjoy great food, entertainment and meet new friends while raising money for a good cause.

The co-founders of Pacing For The Cure greatly appreciate our sponsors and individual donors and continue to seek additional supporters of any kind. If you wish to support Pacing For The Cure, or obtain more information, please contact Jeff Gesek at 609.354.8992 or e-mail
