Networking for a Purpose - Sims Patrick Studio Fights ALS

Hope For Steve logoCeramic Technics and Sims Patrick Studio are thrilled to invite you to attend a unique networking event on Wednesday, September 10 from 6:30-9:00 pm.  This event will allow the Architectural Design Community to network, while raising money for a cause near and dear to our hearts at Sims Patrick Studio - ALS, also known as "Lou Gerhigs" disease.


We are excited to be hosting this event at the beautiful CinéBistro at Town Brookhaven, where we will be featuring the award-winning documentary, Hope for Steve.  This important film has received tremendous accolades from within the film industry and is already rumored to be nominated for an Academy Award.  This documentary has been featured on ABC News, CNN, CBS News and many more. 


Everyone is welcome to this event, even if they are not part of the design community.  There are many levels of sponsorship, from $150 to $1,000+. Individuals may purchase a ticket for $25, which includes one drink ticket and a bag of popcorn. If you would like to attend or have questions about sponsoring the event, contact Nicole Higgins at 678-773-8544. Please RSVP by August 29th.  All proceeds raised from this very fun evening will be donated to the largest event in the southeast that benefits ALS reasearch, the 9th annual Night of Hope Gala, which will be held on October 17 at the InterContinental Buckhead.


In August of 2011, Steve Dezember II was diagnosed with ALS, a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.  The disorder is characterized by rapidly progressive weakness, muscle atrophy and fasciculations, muscle spasticity, difficulty speaking, difficulty swallowing, and decline in breathing ability.  We want to spread awareness and most importantly, HOPE for all those diagnosed with this horrible condition.

You may ask why Sims Patrick Studio is helping raise awareness for ALS.  Libby Patrick explains it this way: "This is such a horrible disease that took my brother Bill at age 43 about 7 years ago. My sisters and my family vowed that we would not stop, helping to raise awareness and money for research, until we find a cure." 


We hope you will join us!
