Aimed at raising awareness and critical funds for multiple sclerosis research, Ante Up for MS will transform the traditional men’s night out poker game into an evening of women’s empowerment.  Business women will learn from the Poker Prima Divas™ how to use strategic poker techniques to play the game which in turn may help enhance their business skills and enrich their confidence as negotiators.

Players will also have the opportunity to meet honorary co-chair, Vanessa Selbst, the highest earning female poker player ever.

Tickets begin at $250.

Proceeds will benefit the 12,000 people living with multiple sclerosis in the five boroughs and Westchester, Putnam, Rockland, Orange and Sullivan counties as well as the Society’s cutting-edge research initiatives.

About Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. 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 leading to better understanding and 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 2.3 million people worldwide.
