EAU celebrates volunteers!

SALT LAKE CITY, Sunday, September 20, 2015- The Epilepsy Association of Utah sets date for awards.

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”

On Saturday, September 26th, 2015, Adobe Systems, Inc. will open its doors to the volunteers, members and staff of the Epilepsy Association of Utah to celebrate the 3rd Annual Community Service Awards. This Annual event celebrates the many individuals, companies and groups that volunteer their time, talents and people to furthering the cause of epilepsy awareness in Utah.

“As one of the oldest Nonprofits in Utah, we have had the opportunity to meet some of the most amazing people and companies. Utah truly is one of the most caring states, the most active in giving of themselves, and some of the most passionate people in the country,” Said Annette Maughan, CEO and President. “We would be remiss to not take this time to say Thank You to those people who have sacrificed to help people with epilepsy live more rewarding lives. These awards are a small token of the epilepsy community’s gratitude.”
