Sponsorship opportunities are now available for our January 25, 2024 event! This year, we’ve increased exposure through digital elements at the Armory and so much more.

Your sponsorship drives groundbreaking research, providing physician-scientists with the resources to discover the best ways to treat and someday cure debilitating neurological diseases—such as Ataxia, ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, and Parkinson’s.

As a sponsor, you will have the unique opportunity to market your company to our audience of corporate and community leaders and supporters of neuroscience research and care. Last year, more than 400 guests enjoyed the festivities, including a VIP reception with top Minnesota Twins players and alumni, exclusive auctions, and exciting entertainment.

Don't miss out - contact Amanda Pieper with sponsorship inquiries at [email protected] or 612-624-4897.
