Jayne Bray was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1990.  Inspired by his mother's strength in coping with this disease, her son, Michael Bray, created a new event in our community called The Right Notes Wine Tasting Benefit, South Jersey's Fight Against MS.  Founder of Passion Vines Wines and Spirits, Michael enlists his wine vendors to share their expertise for a lively evening with live music, delicious food, and a tremendous auction, all with a mission to help local people coping with MS.

The MS Society estimates about one million people are living with multiple sclerosis (MS), a condition that strikes the central nervous system, which comprises the brain, optic nerves, and spinal cord. This is why MS impacts the vision, hearing, memory, balance, speech, and mobility of people it affects.

MS strikes mostly teens and young adults between the ages of 15 and 40, and women are three times more likely to develop MS than men. mpared to men. Even though there is no known cure for this complex disease, early diagnosis can prevent further damage, such as total vision loss and paralysis.

You can support the efforts of the MS Society and help local people living with MS by attending The Right Notes Wine Tasting Benefit on Thursday, October 17, at Greate Bay Country Club in Somers Point, NJ.
