At least, no Dinner with Friends!

When we usually would have been planning the annual benefit, DINNER WITH FRIENDS, COVID was still rearing its ugly head. With compromised health, especially respiratory complications among people with spinal cord injury, we would not risk holding an indoor event, especially one as lively as Dinner with Friends!

Three years without our major fundraiser has been a real challenge!

We are hopeful that even though there won’t be a dinner, music, dancing and the joy of spending time with old and new friends, that you will make a contribution to USAIC because the onset of paralysis did not take a break during COVID!

It looks like Dinner with Friends will be back next year but we need your help now. Please donate now and help when paralysis instantaneously happens. Although the people we serve may not know that you were someone who helped, we in the association will know, and you will have our lasting gratitude.

For every $25 contributed, donors will be entered into a drawing for prizes:

50″ TV

Outdoor Smokeless Grill

8 Collectable/Colorized $2 Bills

Chicago Wolves Jersey & Game Tickets

The drawing will be held during the meeting of the Board of Directors on Wednesday, March 15. Four winners will be notified via email and names will be posted in the newsletter.

Spinal cord injuries have not stopped because of Covid. USAIC’s need is as great as ever. People are still being paralyzed by accidents, violence, and medical conditions and dealing with all the long-term ramifications. USAIC still needs to be here to help them navigate life with this complex disability and we still need your support. You won’t be purchasing dinner or raffle tickets but you can still help. Please consider sending a contribution to help USAIC through this strange time we are living in. Your gift may help someone through an extremely difficult time.
