sunday night captured the essence of the MS Society's mission:

"People affected by MS can live their best lives as we stop MS in its tracks, restore what has been lost and end MS forever." -National Multiple Sclerosis Society

Fall Crush is an annual event that incorporates incredibly talented local chefs, really good wine, and a lot of passionate and generous people to find a cure to this neurological disease that affects 2.3 million people worldwide.  Multiple Sclerosis can be a very tricky condition to diagnose since there are varying degrees and symptoms.  The procedure involves ruling out many other potential illnesses and narrowing the field to an eventual diagnosis.  Some get a diagnosis in 4 weeks, some over the course of several months.  We can do better and the mission of the MS society believes so too.  "Together we are stronger" and i saw this first hand on sunday night as 150 guests, 6 chefs, and many others gathered at Green Door Gourmet to sip, savor and stop MS.

thank you to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society Mid South Chapter for asking me to document this event.  Alongside Mayter Photography, we had a blast capturing this event.
