Awarding Community Service


Community Service has its Rewards

SALT LAKE CITY, Saturday August 24th, 2013 - The EAU's Community Service Awards are the annual opportunity to recognize, encourage and promote those people and entities that make or have made an impact in the epilepsy community within Utah.

This year marks another achievement: our 40th Anniversary! And that’s something to party about!

“We are so excited to celebrate how far the EAU has come since its inception,” says Holly Ferrin, Executive Director.  “It’s gratifying to recognize those who have helped our organization enhance the quality of life for all individuals living with epilepsy and seizure disorders.  This will excite and revitalize the energies put forth with volunteer efforts for future endeavors with the Epilepsy Association of Utah.”  

So brush up on your 'Crocodile Rock' and wear your best 1973 leisure suit because we are going retro! Anyone for some Fondue?
