Suzi Oravec is an up and coming Nashville singer who has generously offered to donate her time and talents for the benefit of WPI. In addition to performing at WPI's gala fundraiser this September, Suzi is donating an autographed copy of her debut album "Love and Lies" for the silent auction. We need your help to raise seven hundred and fifty dollars to pay for Suzi's flight and hotel stay for the benefit of WPI research and neuro-immune disease. By donating as little as $10.00 you can help us bring Suzi to Reno this September and make our fundraising event the most successful ever.

» Please visit our Causes page to make a donation in support of Suzi coming here to perform.

If you are interested in helping collect items for the silent auction, please download the two forms below. All items need to be returned to WPI by August 24th. If you have any questions please email Kellen Jones at kjones@wpinstitute.org.

Patient Garden Party Fundraiser

Advocate Alex in the UK held a garden party to aid the Whittemore Petersen Institute on May 21, 2011. The day was a huge success.  Around 60 people attended enjoying glorious weather in the beautiful garden of her in-laws.  Thanks to the wonderful generosity of those attending she made £548.70 which will help the WPI in our research into finding a cure for neurological diseases including M.E. - of which she is a sufferer.
