            I'll be there. Just hope this doesn't include a field trip to Connecticut...

                Different kind of Rally Joe and Spiney. This one raises funds while rallies in DC raise awareness. Actually I hope both raise awareness but that is the basic difference, research and therapy funds versus votes.

                So this one is held where we can raise the most money. Look around at home where you go for dinner, drinks, upscale pool hall, etc and ask if you can set out a big old jar with a Rally For The Cure signature on it. Drop a few bucks in to get people started. Haggle a gift basket from your organic fruit stand guy for the silent auction. Anyone here a Mary Kay rep? Uhuh, gift baskets are great. So are art items and signed anythings from rock stars. Know a good resort? Ask them to donate, tax deductible, a weekend at their place. Ask your church to do a pancake breakfast with the proceeds going to the Rally. Overactive grade schoolers you know? Help them organize a jump rope or hop a thon.

                I'm sure we'll get more details like which hotels have the best rates for those who want to attend and party down afterwards as the New Year chimes in. Oh, and I believe the Keck Center is the sponsor of the annual Winter Garden Rally.

                    Thats a important thing to note, you really don't know much about this event. So, with that in mind, I hope this Rally for the Cure isn't billed as a rally by and for the sci community themselves as the last one was.

                    Other than that, I hope it turns out well and raises enough funds so Dr. Young can deliver the miracle cure.

                      And people tell me to turn down my bluntness...

                      Yes, except for 2002 when the Winter Garden was still in ruins after 9-11 the annual gala/rally to raise funds in the NYC area has been there.

                      The actual name of the center is the Keck Center for COLLABORATIVE Neuroscience.

                      From the TMA site linked below and to even things up since you seem to believe that Rutgers is the only university that raises funds for research..:

                      The 2006 Rare Neuroimmunologic Disorders Symposium will be held in Baltimore, MD - Wednesday, July 19 - Sunday, July 23. (Sue here=Formerly this was known simply as the Transverse Myelitis Symposium. I'll be there, will you?)

                      We wanted to get you the dates as soon as we had them, so that you could add them to your calendars.

                      It will be jointly sponsored by the Transverse Myelitis Association, Project RESTORE/Johns Hopkins.

                      It is likely that Wednesday will be the registration/reception day with the presentations starting on Thursday morning.

                      More information will be posted here when I (meaning Jim Lubin) have it.

                        DA, for those who go to New York the funds we riase and the video clips are done before we arrive. Once the evening festivities are over and those with blessedly large hearts and pockets leave we can then go out together with our CC buds. It's a good time to meet people you have only met via the net or phone before. And as one quad said last year, "you know you're with friends when you can order buffalo wings and eat them at the bar instead of taking them home and wrapping yourself in a dish towel before chowing down."

                        So for those who can make it there is a little time after Wise, hopefully, gives us all an update on where things stand around the world to get to the rally. Once the rally is over this is many peoples' only vacation because of family budgets. And it is very near to ferries to Liberty Island and many family attractions.

                          Aw, man, my sister is getting married the next weekend and it's an Indian-Philipino-Czech wedding which means it's gonna be a three week long event most likely.

                          I'm gonna try and see if I can sneak out for a day or two

                            Is this the one where a ticket is $200-$500?

                            This is what I was talking about Spiney.

                              Bob, you need a new conspiracy, dude. This one's old and boring. Why not sniff out CC fakers instead
