I’m full of hope after attending this event and meeting dedicated doctors, researchers, fundraisers, donors, and fellow parents in the Dravet community. It’s a club we never wanted to join, but it’s full of remarkable people I am honored to know the bravest children. – Wendy Fry, Dravet parent

Everything about the City Bash was on point. The atmosphere and energy of the crowd was perfect, the food was excellent, and the flow of the event was seamless. – Dana Haddox-Wright, Dravet parent

It was really a great night! I loved spending time with so many people all working together to fight this disease. – Maryanne Houser, Dravet parent

An evening of Food, Fun & Friends

Dravet Syndrome Foundation’s CITY BASH took place on May 2, 2019 at the

Gramercy Farmer & The Fish, New York City.

Because of the generosity of family, friends, and supporters we raised over $175,000!

THANK YOU to all that helped make this fun night a success!

VIP Tasting

We kicked off the evening with VIP Tasting of single malts, champagne & caviar with some truly generous supporters. Gentlemen were treated to a selection of single malts courtesy of Glenmorangie, and ladies sampled champagnes. Both were paired with impeccable small bites from the chef at Farmer and the Fish.

Hors d'oeuvres and Cocktail Hour

Guests were greeted with delicious hors d’oeuvres and refreshments. The signature style of the venue “farm to table fish house” stood out in beautiful presentations. A raw bar, charcuterie table, and cocktails were enjoyed by all.

Dinner & Mingling with Friends of DSF

We were incredibly honored to be joined by friends and supporters of DSF from across the country. Guests included physicians, researchers, and philanthropists devoted to supporting the Foundation's efforts. Their support is vital to finding a cure for this horrible disease.

Silent & Live Auctions

Thanks to the huge outpouring from friends and family, we had some amazing items to offer for auction. Thanks to the generosity of 21 GRAMS, we were able to offer a Chef's Tasting with Wine Pairings at TAO and private box tickets to the Billy Joel Concert at Madison Square Garden.
