A Lupus Fundraiser to Celebrate Christine's Very Merry Un-Birthday!
Christine Miserandino The Miserandino Family "Team Christine" for Lupus Walk 2012 www.ButYouDontLookSick.com

I have made a new tradition of using my birthday to not only celebrate another fabulous year, but to take the opportunity to raise money that is close to my heart which is of course is the Lupus Alliance. I do not need another gift card, or sweater, or bracelet.. The best gift is the gift of hope that we can give others living with lupus. I have been very blessed that this past year I have been on the newest Lupus drug called Benlysta. It has been very successful and I am so grateful for my health and I am loving my life.
We have planned a birthday party for me, but this time the gifts are for you! There will be tons of amazing raffle prizes as well as gift bags for the first 60 attendees!
Come celebrate with beer, wine, soda, food, music and friends while we toast to another year despite Lupus!
All raffles are $50+ or $100+ value!!!
All proceeds will go to the Lupus Alliance of Long Island/ Queens and will help "kick off" Team Christine's Lupus walk fundraising. Every year our team tries to raise more money then the year before and we have been walking as a family for over 18 years.
Because I turned 35 on July 27th, we are celebrating a month late.. so come to my "un birthday" party! It is probably your "un-birthday" too!
Event starts at 7pm
Tickets are $35 when bought in advance. $40 at the door
If you wear purple to the event to show your support for lupus awareness, you will recieve a special raffle ticket.

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), or lupus, is a chronic, complex and serious autoimmune disease affecting more than 1.5 million Americans. In lupus, the immune system, which is designed to protect against infection, creates antibodies that attack the body's own tissues and organs -- the kidneys, brain, heart, lungs, blood, skin, and joints. Lupus is difficult to diagnose, difficult to treat, and a leading cause of premature cardiovascular disease, kidney disease and stroke among young women.
