Description

Help for Today, Hope for Tomorrow

When you register for Mariposa, the money you raise supports the Fibromyalgia Care Society of America's fight to improve the lives of people affected by fibromyalgia and their families. This is the second annual cocktail party in New York City which will serve to bring together the community of those living with fibromyalgia in the Greater New York region and the Northeast.


2019 Honorees

The event will not only serve to celebrate the important work we are doing but also to honor individuals who have been part of our work and more specifically, those who have had an impact on the broader fibromyalgia community. We have an exciting evening planned and are grateful to have support from our community partners in helping to make this event a success.
