Epicureans for Epilepsy

We all enjoy getting together with family and friends -

especially when food is involved! Epicureans for Epilepsy

is a fundraiser that will support epilepsy programs and

local research in South Carolina. We are looking for people

with a heart for epilepsy to host dinner parties or our newly

added non-party parties! If you are interested and would like

to receive our host information packet, please email

Karen@scepilepsy.org and the packet will be emailed to you!

Please feel free to invite others that might be interested.


Thank you for your interest! 

YOU can make a difference!

Our goal is to recruit at least 25 hosts and raise $25,000.
