The annual NFL Draft Party to benefit The Karen Foundation for MS is almost here – April 28, 11am-6pm

April may already be halfway over, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t still plenty of time to get out and do something (or 10 things) fun this month.  I have to second Poise in Parma, who recently posted her second monthly edition of April events to enjoy, that it can get a little exhausting just thinking about all of the upcoming events.

However, I’d rather the problem of Cleveland having too much to do, than not enough.

One event to particularly look forward to is the annual NFL Draft Party on April 28 to benefit The Karen Foundation for Multiple Sclerosis.

The Karen Foundation is a local, grassroots nonprofit that works with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society with the goal of funding the respite program in Northeast Ohio. The respite program helps people with MS and their caregivers by providing short-term home health and homemaker services.

Through a series of affordable and unique events, The Karen Foundation builds awareness and has been recognized as the largest third-party donor to the NMMS’s Ohio respite program.

Their signature event every year is the NFL Draft Party, which last year helped over 200 families in Cleveland alone.

The party takes place on April 28 from 11am to 6pm at The Barley House and celebrates the NFL Draft with Tony Rizzo and J’Rod Cherry hosting a live, on-air interactive post-draft analysis.

Tickets are $35 in advance and $40 at the door, which includes a donation to The Karen Foundation, hors d’oeuvres, 2 drink tickets, valet parking, a grand prize raffle ticket and entertainment all day.

Regardless of whether or not you’re a sports fan, there will be plenty to enjoy at The Karen Foundation’s draft party.

From 11-2, guests will be able to watch an ESPN RADIO live remote broadcast and the Scott & Dale Show.  Afterwards, Light of Two Moons, a Jimmy Buffet Tribute band, and Swamps of Jersey, the Midwest’s premier Bruce Springsteen Tribute Band, will entertain.

Meanwhile, Cleveland Browns star Joe Haden, Cleveland Browns Alumni, Cleveland Gladiator Cheerleaders and other special guests will make appearances throughout the day while Fox 8′s Dan Coughlin MCs.

Additional entertainment will include casino-style gaming, a Texas-Hold-Em tournament, a silent auction, chair massage and manicurists, as well as stilt walkers and  balloon and caricature artists all day long.

TKF’s NFL Draft Party is not just for sports fans, with music, games and other entertainment all day long

Although TKF’s NFL Draft Party is already very affordable at $35 in advance ($40 day of), you can save even more.

    There is no known cure for multiple sclerosis. Treatments attempt to return function after an attack, prevent new attacks, and prevent disability. MS medications can have adverse effects or be poorly tolerated, and many people pursue alternative treatments, despite the lack of evidence. The long term outcome is difficult to predict; depending on the subtype of the disease, the individual’s disease characteristics, the initial symptoms and the degree of disability the person experiences over time.:*.^
