Team J-Cubed will hold its fifth annual beef-and-beer fundraiser to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society on Saturday, March 23, from 7:30 to 11:30 p.m. at Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5’s new Heroes Ballroom, at 11630 Caroline Road.
Team J-Cubed is named in honor of three people with multiple sclerosis: Bustleton’s John Muller, his nephew Jim Ross and Muller’s cousin Jenny Richman.
Tickets cost $30 in advance and $40 at the door, and include dinner, beer, wine, soda, a Chinese auction and music by PJ the DJ.
Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease that affects the brain and spinal cord. It causes loss of balance, weakness, problems with coordination, muscle spasms, numbness and fatigue.
The onset usually occurs in young adults, ages 20-40. The cause is unknown, though research seems to point to genetics. There is no known cure. People with multiple sclerosis generally have a life expectancy five to 10 years less than the general population.
Besides the beef-and-beer, Team J-Cubed supports the National Multiple Sclerosis Society by participating in the organization’s annual walk and bicycle ride.
Anyone who wants to make a donation can send it to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s Greater Delaware Valley Chapter. The address is 30 S. 17th St., Suite 800, Philadelphia, PA 19103. Write “Team J-Cubed” in the memo line.
