Thank you to everyone who attended or donated to The Epilepsy Foundation of Arizona’s 2015 Purple & Black Ball. We enjoyed spending an evening of exciting music from Jumping Cholla & the Naked Horns, paired with elegant evening attire, dinner and a silent auction with you and hope to see you again next year.
The 10th Anniversary of the Foundation’s gala honored Dr. Joseph Drazkowski with the Commitment to Epilepsy award and celebrated in memory of Ray Krueger with the Outstanding Fundraiser of the Year award.
The annual Purple & Black Ball is a highly anticipated social event which bonds a community in support of a great cause. The Epilepsy Foundation of Arizona has established itself as a leader in epilepsy education and continues to strive to provide forward thinking programs and resources. Events like the annual gala are vital to funding the many programs and services offered by the Foundation.

Responsive neurostimulation is a new approach to treating medically uncontrolled partial onset seizures. The RNS® System is the first device to provide responsive neurostimulation, automatically monitoring brain signals and providing stimulation to abnormal electrical brain events just when it is needed.
Everyone here at the Epilepsy Foundation would like to say thank you for all of your support this year at our walk. We raised $61,000 and had almost 600 walkers show up to support us. We look forward to seeing you all again next November.
