Multiple Solutions is the junior board of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society in Greater Illinois. This group of young professionals is dedicated to creating a world free of MS by fostering awareness among young adults throughout Illinois, and provide volunteer and fundraising support for the National MS Society.
Multiple Solutions offers members a variety of ways to get involved and support the National MS Society. Aside from assisting with advocacy efforts and offering a place for young professionals who are directly affected by MS to seek support, the Junior Board also hosts four signature fundraising events each year: MS Summer Social, MS Slugfest, MS Pub Crawl, and MS Soiree.
- MS Slugfest: a co-ed 16” softball tournament held at Mt Greenwood Park on Saturday, August 11, 2018. More than 20 teams come together for a full day of softball games and an exciting home-run derby.
- MS Summer Social: a cocktail party fundraiser held at Chop Shop Chicago on Friday, September 14, 2018. More than 250 young professionals attend where they enjoy music, dancing, cocktails, hors d’ oeuvres, and a luxury opportunity drawing.
- MS Pubcrawl: official 2019 date and location TBD. More details coming this fall!
- MS Soiree: a cocktail party and casino-night fundraiser held at Galleria Marchetti on Saturday, February 9, 2019. More than 500 guests attend the event and enjoy casino games, music, dancing, cocktails, small bites from local restaurants, and an extensive silent auction.
Members of Multiple Solutions also advocate on behalf of people living with MS, serving as National Multiple Sclerosis Society ambassadors and connecting young adults who live with MS with each other and with supporters, helping them recognize that they are not alone.
