The Brennan family hosted the third annual Dance for Dravet benefiting the Dravet Syndrome Foundation in honor of Anna at Third Degree Glass Factory in late October. Guests enjoyed a cocktail hour with appetizers, music by Chris Cahill and a silent auction. After dinner, emcee Tom Ackerman led the live auction, which included a custom glass-blown artwork from Third Degree Glass Factory. This year’s event raised more than $400,000 to help fund research for Dravet syndrome and support patients and their families.
“The entire Brennan family is extremely grateful to be able to support Anna and everyone suffering from this tragic disease,” Jim Brennan says. “It’s a privilege to be a part of this event and raise awareness. We can only hope that one day there will be enough funds to find a cure for these families. In the meantime, we will support them the best way we know how.”
