Steffens Scleroderma Foundation Virtual Cruise for a Cure
You’re invited to attend the Steffens Scleroderma Foundation’s Virtual Cruise for a Real Cure to raise awareness and funds to fight scleroderma and Degos disease.
Typically, this annual fundraising tradition involves boarding the Dutch Apple to take a boat ride on the scenic Hudson River. Due to the pandemic and the need for social distancing this summer, we’re asking you to join us, virtually, for an hour of fun for a great cause!
Tickets are $40, tax-deductible, and include an event shirt, online auction and 2 raffle tickets for great prizes. Raffles and online auction will include gift certificates to Capital Region restaurants, gourmet gift baskets, and entertainment tickets. Proceeds will support research to find effective treatments and a cure for scleroderma and Degos disease, and medical education and awareness programs to help speed diagnosis.
So grab your favorite beverage and a comfy seat and join us on July 12th from the comfort of your backyard, deck, or living room. Here are the details:
