David Osmond, Stephanie Stricklen (KGW) and Patrick Lamb to Appear at Gala Event

August 28, 2014

We’re excited to announce three major updates to our A Night in the Park fundraising gala lineup:

First up, KGW news anchor and Portland favorite, Stephanie Stricklen, will open the event and co-emcee. If you’ve never seen Stephanie at a live event, you’re in for a real treat.

During dinner, learn the fascinating story of the famous Osmond family—and their own battles with MS—with co-emcee and keynote speaker, David Osmond.

Then dance beneath the stars—or just sit back and enjoy a relaxing cocktail—with the sounds of Portland’s only soul, funk, R&B and jazz fusion extraordinaire, Patrick Lamb.

Proceeds benefit the National MS Society, Oregon Chapter.

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.
