Great Neck resident Mindy Alpert will be honored by the National Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society on Wednesday, March 9, at its Runway for MS Fashion Show Luncheon at the Crest Hollow Country Club at 11:30 a.m.
Alpert is a longtime valued member of the National MS Society. In her numerous volunteer roles, she goes above and beyond to further the mission of the society. In recognition of all that she does to help those with MS, she will be presented with the Leadership Award at the luncheon.
Kristin Thorne, Long Island correspondent for WABC-TV’s Eyewitness News, will once again serve as emcee for the event as hundreds of guests celebrate and honor those who are living with MS, as well as caregivers and volunteers, through an inspiring fashion show sponsored by Lord & Taylor in Bay Shore.
“I chose to model to show how MS isn’t stopping me from helping others in the community,” said Amy McGlynn of St. James, a model at this year’s fashion show. “I want to inspire others to do the same, not letting MS or anything stop them.” McGlynn is one of 12 models sharing her story at the event.
The National MS Society is set to raise more than $100,000 through this year’s luncheon to support the society’s mission in mobilizing people and resources so that everyone affected by the disease can live their best lives as the society aims to stop MS in its tracks, restore what has been lost and end MS forever.
The ticket price is $150 per person and a table of 10 is $1,350. For more information about the luncheon, sponsorship opportunities or to purchase tickets, visit www.nmssli.org, call 631-864-8337, option 2, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
