Event description

Description

Chive Pittsburgh is partying for a purpose to support four year old Isaiah, who has the rare genetic disorder of MMPSI - Malignant Migrating Partial Seizures of Infancy, and his family in an effort to purchase a wheelchair accessible vehicle.

The event itself is free to attend so there is no hard ticket to attend the event. Couch Brewery is offering a drink fundraiser from 7PM - 10PM where a portion of each drink sale goes toward Isaiah's campaign.

We are offering a food fundraiser ticket which gets you pizza and wings from Pizza Parma:

- $15.00 ticket gets you 2 slices of pizza & 6 chicken wings

- $50.00 ticket gets you 6 slices of pizza & 12 wings + the extra donation to make you feel extra good about the night.

Both paid tickets are available to purchase prior to the event here or in person day of. **NOTE: IN PERSON / DAY OF TICKET PURCHASES ARE CASH ONLY**

There is a free RSVP ticket spot so we can keep track of how many people are attending.

We will have a Silent Auction with a variety of baskets including local business and multiple CHIVE gear baskets up for grabs.

Also the event will be DJ'd and MR Bulgogi food truck will be on site outside. This event is open to everyone so please spead the word. The more people we get in Couch Brewery the more money gets donated to Isaiah.


If you are out of town but still want to donate please donate by purchasing a ticket here or donate on Isaiah's Go Fund Me page. Thanks!

From his Go Fund Me campaign:

Isaiah is 4 years old. At the age of 4 months, it became apparent that something was not typical. Isaiah and his family, Mom, Dad, brother Elijah and sister Alexa moved back home from MO to PA to be closer to family. Within days of arriving home, Isaiah's health took a turn for the worse and he spent the next nine months or more in and out of Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh while doctors tried to figure out what was wrong. Isaiah was experiencing seizures that some days numbered in excess of 100. Local doctors suggested that there was no hope, but our family was determined to find answers and not give up on our little blessing.

Eventually, our little guy was diagnosed with the rare genetic disorder of MMPSI - Malignant Migrating Partial Seizures of Infancy. Parental determination and research lead Isaiah's parents to a specialist that can care for him and specializes in his very rare illness.

Since that time, with a lot of trial and error, our medically fragile super hero's health has stabilized although even what we consider a common cold can place Isaiah back in the hospital.

Isaiah now attends school at Easter Seals. His mind is clear, but, he has little, if any, control of his body. He is; however, our champ and an inspiration to others in spite of his limitations. He makes us laugh, has a very unique and present sense of humor and shares his mind with us through his beautiful eyes.

As he continues to grow (and that he has!) the ability to transition Isaiah into the aging family minivan has become a challenge, and the cost of a wheelchair accessible van for Isaiah is outside of the financial means of his hard working and giving family. Efforts are underway to address the cost of the van for his family and there have been numerous suggestions that a GoFundMe page be created to help supplement the cost of a van, if purchased new, would be approximately $60,000.

We thank you for taking the time to read about our mission.
