By June 13th, 2022No Comments

Phillips Murrah is proud to sponsor the Cure FA Soirée hosted by The Gehr family on May 22 to benefit Friedreich’s Ataxia Research Alliance (FARA).

The Firm’s sponsorship for the annual event is supported by Director Heather L. Hintz who has been active with the organization and this fundraising event since its inception four years ago.

“I’ve supported the cause because of the enthusiasm, courage, and resilience of Michael Gehr, and the determination of the Gehr family to find a cure for FA,” Hintz said.

Friedreich’s ataxia is a hereditary disease causing progressive nervous system damage and impairing movement, among other afflictions, and new treatments are being studied in hopes of finding a cure.

The event will include live performances, dinner, and a silent auction and will be hosted at the Hilton Garden Inn in Edmond, OK. Registration can be found here and is open to the public.
