Event Description

Sjogrens Syndrome Foundation presents: Sip For Sjogrens - Fine Water Tasting Sunday, September 23, 2:00pm-5:00pm, Sausalito MORE INFO: Come join us for a casual event as we sample some of the most unique and finest bottled waters from around the world while helping to raise awareness of Sjogren's syndrome. Sjogren's syndrome is a chronic autoimmune disease in which a person's white blood cells attack their moisture-producing glands. Sjogrens Syndrome affects between 2-4 million Americans and nine out of ten patients are women. There is no known cause, or cure for Sjogrens Syndrome. Sjogrens is recognized in the medical community as the most under-diagnosed autoimmune disease due to many symptoms that mimic other conditions. Although Sjogrens Syndrome is a systemic autoimmune disease, one of the hallmark symptoms is dry mouth. So what better way to raise funds for Sjogren's research and education than to participate in a fine water tasting event! The event will include a Fine Water Tasting, Silent Auction, Wine and Light Refreshments. 2:00 pm Silent Auction Opens 2:30 pm Opening Remarks and Water Tasting Instructions 4:00 pm Silent Auction Closes All of the proceeds from this event will go directly to support the work of the Sjogren's Syndrome Foundation which includes raising money for research grants, educating the medical community and patients on Sjogrens Syndrome, and creating awareness in general for this autoimmune disease.
