“Yeah, I Fight Like a Girl!”
Dover, DE – Noble’s Pond, the premier 55+ community in Dover has organized a Girl’s Night Out to fight MS on September 8, 2012. This community fundraising event, organized by Colleen Ostafy, Colleen Evans, and Noble’s Pond General Manager Mary Field, will benefit the Delaware Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Tickets for this night out are $20 per person and will include heavy hors d’oeuvres from several local restaurants, music by DJ Dee Va, a fashion show sponsored by Blooming Boutique in Milford, mini makeovers, and much more!
“We decided to host this event for the MS Society because the rate of MS is so high in Delaware, and particularly high among women,” said event organizer Colleen Ostafy. “Through events like this we can move closer to the day when MS will stand for mystery solved.”
The cause is also close to Ostafy’s heart as her 29-year-old daughter was diagnosis with multiple sclerosis.

About Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system, interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Every hour in the United States, someone is newly diagnosed with the disease. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 400,000 people in the U.S. and over 2.1 million worldwide.
About the National Multiple Sclerosis Society
MS stops people from moving. The National MS Society exists to make sure it doesn’t. We help each person address the challenges of living with MS. In 2011 alone, through our national office and 50-state network of chapters, we devoted $164 million to programs and services that improved the lives of more than one million people. To move us closer to a world free of MS, the Society also invested $40 million to support more than 325 new and ongoing research projects around the world. We are people who want to do something about MS now. Join the movement at nationalMSsociety.org. In Delaware, call (302) 655-5610. Or visit www.MSdelaware.org.
