The Women’s Board of Barrow Neurological Foundation netted over $7 million for Barrow Neurological Institute through the 2023 Barrow Grand Ball, reaching a milestone of $100 million raised since their 1965 inaugural Ball.
This year’s Ball Co-Chairs, Amy Cohn and Erin Gogolak, galvanized Women’s Board members’ and donors’ passion for supporting the research and programs of Barrow’s world-renowned physicians, scientists, and clinicians, according to a press release.
“The magnitude of achieving the lifetime $100 million mark is laudable, given the first Barrow Grand Ball 58 years ago earned $26,000,” said 2023 Women’s Board Chairman Diane Might. “Our Board is an accomplished, dynamic, and influential group of women dedicated to supporting Barrow Neurological Institute. Our members’ passionate advocacy for ‘bench-to-bedside’ research and treatment helps save lives and improves the quality of life for those suffering from brain and spinal disorders.”
Each year, the Ball co-chairs choose a specific Barrow research project to which members’ donations are expressly designated. These projects highlight key areas of Barrow research that are not only innovative, but also make a measurable impact on patients’ lives.
