The Epilepsy Foundation Eastern Pennsylvania's 11th Annual Mardi Gras Gala brings in hundreds of prominent figures from the community with the shared goal of improving the quality of life of those affected by epilepsy. The Black-Tie Gala features an open bar complete with masks, beads, hurricanes, French Creole sit-down dinner, dancing and lively entertainment. The 2018 Gala will honor Dave and Kerri Monnerat of Epilepsy Dad as King & Queen of Mardi Gras for their advocacy and efforts to improve awareness about the ups and downs of raising a child with intractable seizures. The 2018 Gala will also recognize posthumously the life-long efforts of Richard I. Katz, MD. Dr. Katz served the epilepsy community as an EFEPA Board Member, Camp Achieve volunteer, and a compasionate Neurologist. All proceeds benefit free programs and services provided through Eastern PA.
