The Knuckle Ball…A Pitch for Life is Heading to Phoenix

Joe Niekro Foundation Knuckle Ball

On October 17th, 2015, athletes from all over the country will come together, in association with The Joe Niekro Foundation and The Society of Neuro-Interventional Surgery Foundation, to support brain aneurysmAVM and hemorrhagic stroke research and awareness, for the 6thAnnual Knuckle Ball…A Pitch for Life at the JW Marriott Resort in Phoenix, AZ.

The black-tie evening, hosted by actress and brain aneurysm survivor, Tamala Jones, will feature a festive reception, silent auction, formal dinner, event program and LIVE auction (plus a few surprises in between).  The gala is the foundation’s largest event of the year and pays tribute to those that have lost their lives to these fatal conditions, while honoring the survivors who are fighting everyday to recover.

We are proud to announce that Petrice “TC” Schuttler will be honored as the Joe Niekro Humanitarian of the Year for her outstanding commitment and contributions to the Phoenix community.  Petrice has devoted her life to improving the lives of others and we are incredibly excited to present her with this year’s award.  The Joe Niekro Foundation Medical Humanitarian of the Year recipient, Joseph Zabramski, MD will be recognized for his research and continued advancements and treatment studies of brain aneurysms, AVMs and hemorrhagic strokes.

Since her father’s tragic and sudden death as a result of a brain aneurysm, Natalie Niekro established The Joe Niekro Foundation, committed to supporting patients and families, research, and treatment of brain aneurysms, AVMs and hemorrhagic strokes. We provide education on the risk factors, causes and treatments of these conditions, while funding the advancement of neurological research.

We would be honored to have you join our efforts and look forward to welcoming you at the 6th Annual Knuckle Ball…A Pitch for Life.

    Reblogged this on Studio Laurent Photography & Design and commented:
    As some of you may know, my daughter Chloe was born in January 2014 with a Vein Of Galen Malformation (VOGM), which is an extremely rare type of AVM. Over the past 18 months she has gone through 6 brain embolizations. Her first two taking place at one and two-day old and the last one being in December 2014. She is doing much better now but her VOGM is still there. She has received tons of wonderful support from The Joe Niekro Foundation and its members over the past several months and I have offered my photography services to this wonderful organization and their Annual Knuckle Ball event on October 17th in Phoenix. See event details below…
