Decade of Hope Cover

Celebrating a Decade of Hope!

DinnerWe hope you will be able to join us on Saturday, August 20th, 2011 as the Minnesota Rett Syndrome Research Association celebrates a Decade of Hope! 

With your support, the past decade has seen many advances in Rett Syndrome research, including the reversal of Rett Syndrome in a genetic mouse model! 

Saturday, August 20th is sure to be a special evening, as we reflect on where we have been, and look forward to where we are going.  In the coming decade, we hope for more advances, we hope for more treatments and therapies, and we hope for a cure!

We also hope that you will join us on Saturday, August 20th, 2011 at the beautiful Wilds Golf Club in Prior Lake, to celebrate our victories, and reaffirm our commitment to curing Rett Syndrome!  (And also to play a little golf, eat a little, dance a little, and raise a lot of money for Rett Syndrome Research!)

The day's events will begin at 12:00 noon with golfer registration, followed by a 1p.m. shotgun start.

After golf, come back to the clubhouse for the silent auction, Hors d'oeuvres and cocktails followed by the evening's dinner program and entertainment, beginning at 6:00p.m.  Once again the program will include a live auction, which always has some awesome items!  See this year's live auction items.

We look forward to seeing you there!!
