Event Details

“Sip for Sjögren's” is a fine water tasting event created to provide a different and enjoyable experience that is directly tied to the disease itself. While Sjögren's patients suffer from a variety of debilitating symptoms, one of the most commonly known is dryness of the mouth. This unique event will feature a tasting of fine bottled waters from around the world while also helping to increase awareness for Sjögren's and raise funds to further the research and awareness efforts of the SSF.  The event will include drinks and hors d'oeuvres and an exciting silent auction. The Rosenthal Pavilion also features one of the best views of New York City that you can find.

What is Sjögren's 

While best known as a disease that attacks the moisture producing glands in the body, Sjögren's is a systemic autoimmune disease that can affect any body system or organ.  Many patients also experience extreme fatigue and joint pain. Sjögren's is the second most prevalent autoimmune disease in the U.S, with an estimated four million individuals affected, making it three times more common than better known related diseases such as Lupus and Multiple Sclerosis. However, Sjögren's remains relatively unknown and is often undiagnosed or misdiagnosed with the average time from the onset of symptoms to diagnosis being five years. The SSF is the only patient advocacy organization that serves Sjögren’s patients and their healthcare providers, provides support to patients and their families, increases public and professional awareness and encourages research into new diagnostics and treatments.
