The gala may be cancelled, but our mission has not ended.
Schurig Center is currently closed to people coming on site, but we continue to be an essential source of connection and care for people impacted by brain injury, concussion, or stroke. A global crisis like COVID-19 can cause stress for all of us. For people living with brain injury, this crisis can exacerbate challenges they already face. Social distancing can increase feelings of loneliness; result in a backslide of abilities due to lack of stimulation; add stress to domestic relationships; and, increase the need for support.
It’s more important than ever that services continue to be available to support the health of those in our community living with brain injury. That’s why Schurig Center has adapted many of our rehabilitative and supportive services to be offered “virtually” during shelter-in-place. And, we need your help!
We are deeply grateful for our gala sponsors and guests who make this event a success each year. Thanks to you, BAM Gala provides 25% of the funds Schurig Center needs each year to provide its healing programs. For this reason, the forced cancellation of this year’s gala has created a critical-need for operating funds. If you are in a position to do so, we hope you’ll consider making a gift at the same level as you would have given at the event.
