The event’s new location, The Stave Room, mirrors the fundraiser’s elegant and refined ambiance and adds a warm urban charm. The Harvest for a Cure team is excited about the innovative venue, located in the artistic Sweetwater Design District.

Elaine Carlos and her daughter, Kari, Denise Dauphin and Julie Short are all co-chairs of this year’s Harvest for a Cure. Elaine is on the board of trustees for the National MS Society and has been involved in Harvest for a Cure since its inception in 2014. Her husband John was diagnosed with MS at the age of 28 and is currently president and chief operating officer of National Distributing Company and a longtime supporter of the National MS Society. Kari is also on the board of trustees for the National MS Society and is vice president of National Distributing Company. Denise serves on the board of trustees for the National MS Society and is a principal with AEA Group, LLC, a specialized professional services firm that provides consulting involving accounting, economics and appraisal issues. Julie works in sales and marketing at
Affinitiv, a marketing technology company built on advanced analytics and a leading-edge technology platform.
Gerry Klaskala of Aria serves as chef chair and like the Carlos family has a personal connection to the cause: his lifelong friend Mike has struggled with MS since the age of 27. His hope is that this event will help raise funds for researchers to find a cure for MS in Mike’s lifetime.
All funds raised during Harvest for a Cure help improve the lives of people living with MS by sponsoring local programs and services and accelerating worldwide research projects to help put an end to the debilitating disease. For additional information, visit www.mswineevent.org.
