The Epilepsy Foundation of Florida (EFOF) will be launching its November Epilepsy Awareness activities with its annual “Let’s Talk About It – Unmasking Epilepsy Masquerade Cocktail Reception” on Oct. 30, 6:30 p.m., at the Coral Gables Museum.

Guests at this fundraising affair will enjoy hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, live music, awards, raffles as well as a great silent auction. Registration is $30 per person; $55 per couple or $250 for groups of 10.

According to the March 2012, Institute of Medicine Report, 1 in 26 people will develop epilepsy in their lifetime. The Epilepsy Foundation of Florida is a high value charity at 91 percent, meaning 91 cents of every $1 goes directly to program costs.
