(PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – June 4, 2015) – The Bee Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit dedicated to raising awareness and reducing the number of deaths caused by brain aneurysms through innovative research, will hold its second annual awareness and fundraising event on Wednesday, July 15. The event, offering food, drinks, and raffle prizes, will be held at the Mussel Bar and Grille, 7262 Woodmont Avenue in Bethesda, MD, from 6-8 PM.
The Foundation, which was launched in May, 2014, is marking its second year with a repeat of its “awareness event” tour, dedicated to brain aneurysm education and fundraising for needed research.
“The success of our event last year resulted in the D.C. area being named one of our national “Champion Cities,” says Christine (Doherty) Kondra, Foundation co-founder and executive director. “We are excited to be returning to share highlights of our first year as a Foundation. Most significantly, with more than $120,000 raised in 2014, we have announced our first grant of $50,000 for innovative research to the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA for research into early brain aneurysm rupture risk factors. “
