Covering the bases: Diamond Awards event will benefit research focused on progressive brain disorders

Don’t miss the annual Diamond Awards, Minnesota’s premier charity baseball event, on Thursday, January 24, 2008, at the historic Depot in downtown Minneapolis. Attendees will have the opportunity to mingle with current members of the Minnesota Twins and other baseball greats, bid on rare baseball memorabilia and other unique items at a silent auction, and attend the televised awards ceremony. For the first time, proceeds from Diamond Awards will benefit not only University of Minnesota research and care focused on ataxia, but also on muscular dystrophy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease), and Parkinson’s disease—devastating illnesses that affect thousands of families in Minnesota alone. Since its inception two years ago, Diamond Awards has raised nearly $1.2 million for medical research at the University.

You can help strike out ataxia, muscular dystrophy, ALS, and Parkinson’s disease! For tickets or more information, visit or call Sarah Curtis at 612-626-5470.
