As a result of our dinner, silent auction and fundraising events in May we were able to donate $7,000 to University of Minnesota Neuroscience Department Medical Discovery Team on Addiction. This was possible because of the donations received from our dinner and silent auction and fundraising events.
The Medical Discovery Team on Addiction examines how addictive drugs alter the brain and how these changes can lead to compulsive drug use.
