Phillips Murrah supports Friedreich’s Ataxia Research Alliance

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.

“I have really enjoyed serving on the Make-A-Wish Young Professionals board,” Mitchell said. “Make-A-Wish is a very special organization whose mission is to create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.

“Funds raised through Make-A-Wish go directly to giving children fighting serious illnesses their own personal experience of a lifetime. When a child’s wish is granted, it gives them hope, strength, and happiness during what can be the most difficult time for the child and their family. Make-A-Wish is important to me because I love to see our community give back to one of its most needy populations—children fighting life-threatening illnesses.”

Mitchell was recently recognized by Make-A-Wish Oklahoma as their Volunteer Rookie of the Month for March.

The event will be hosted in Oklahoma City at Chicken N Pickle, 8400 N Oklahoma Ave, and registration is still open on Make-A-Wish’s website here.
