As I write this post the weather in Madison, Wisconsin is 1°F. Meanwhile volunteers are warming up (sorry, couldn’t resist) for the 7th annual Lily’s Fund Luau.
Lily’s Fund was established in 2007 at the University of Wisconsin Foundation through a gift from the Giroux family, in honor of their daughter, Lily. It began as an annual award given to a faculty or staff member whose work on epilepsy research was especially noteworthy. Each year the group puts on a fundraiser to support epilepsy research.
On January 24, 2015, Varsity Hall at Union South will be transformed into a fabulous hawaiian luau with music, dancing and fun. The event will benefit epilepsy research through grants awarded by Lily’s Fund.
