4th Annual Cards for Carly at Claddagh Irish Pub
FoodieCards Presents the 4th Annual Cards for Carly at Claddagh Irish Pub in Franklin Park Mall
Benefits The Progeria Research Foundation
Toledo, OH. December 16, 2017, 11am – 7pm: FoodieCards presents the 4th Annual “Cards for Carly [Kudzia]” event, to benefit The Progeria Research Foundation.
This year the event will be held at Claddagh Irish Pub in Franklin Park Mall, Saturday December 16 from 11am –7pm.
The MISSION of The Progeria Research Foundation: is to discover treatments and the cure for Progeria and its aging-related disorders, including heart disease. Progeria is a rare, fatal, “rapid aging” disease. There are only about 100 children in the world who suffer from this disease.
Without the discovery of new treatments, all children with Progeria will die of heart disease at an average age of 14 years.
The Progeria Research Foundation (PRF) was founded in 1999 in response to the complete lack of progress being made to help children with Progeria.
Presently, there is no cure for progeria. Kids can be treated with drugs called FTIs (farnesyltransferase inhibitors), which were initially developed to treat cancer. These drugs improve some aspects of the disease, such as bone structure, arterial stiffness, and increase estimated lifespan by at least 1.6 years.
FoodieCards are a playable deck of cards. Each card deals out $10 off your order at 54 amazing local restaurants, over $500 in value. This year we have added two Cedar Point offers on the wild cards as well. FoodieCards are currently available for Toledo, Cincinnati, Columbus and Columbus.
For the past four years, FoodieCards has been supporting local girl, Carly Kudzia who suffers from Progeria. So far, we have raised nearly $70,000 for Progeria research. FoodieCards sell for $30 per deck and half of all proceeds benefit Progeria Research Foundation.
FoodieCards make great stocking stuffers! The 4th Annual Cards for Carly presented by FoodieCards will be held at Claddagh Irish Pub at Franklin Park Mall Saturday December 16th, from 11am till 7pm.
