Silver Ribbon Event
Organizing and hosting a Silver
Ribbon event is an exciting way to help further the cause of the Silver Ribbon
Campaign for the Brain. Events provide
opportunities to: promote awareness about brain
disorders and disabilities through the publicity they generate,
educate the public through symposiums,
literature, organizations' publicity,
and raise funds for research, advocacy,
and support through, for example, ticket sales, donations,
tribute journals, and auctions.
Contact us for advice on organizing a NARSAD Silver Ribbon Dinner, Art Auction, or
Symposium; a Silver Ribbon Golf Tournament; or a Brain Imaging Center Dinner.
Contact us if you have other ideas for Silver Ribbon Events or you
are looking for suggestions.
