Barnes Foundation

The Multiple Sclerosis Association of America (MSAA) was founded in the Philadelphia area 50 years ago. Since our inception, our organization has been the leading resource for the entire MS community by improving lives through vital services and support. MSAA provides free programs and services to individuals with multiple sclerosis and their families. Programs include a Helpline with trained specialists; award-winning educational videos and publications, including MSAA's magazine, The Motivator; safety and mobility equipment distribution; cooling accessories for heat-sensitive individuals; educational programs held across the country; MRI funding; and Lending Library among other services.

We will be hosting a Virtual Night at the Barnes Foundation in recognition of our 50 years of serving the MS community. The Barnes Foundation, located in Philadelphia, PA and founded by Dr. Albert C. Barnes, is an art collection and educational institution promoting the appreciation of art of horticulture. We will be hosting a livestream program that will include a private, docent-led tour of the Barnes Foundation collection.

$150 - Ticket purchases include a pre-send swag box and a virtual, docent lead tour of the Barnes Foundation collection.
