Fundraising Progress

$113,225 Raised of $125,000 Goal


Dear NFED Family and Friends,

I would like to personally welcome you to the 17th Annual Halloween Bash.

Keith and I, along with Bruce and Alice, our team of 50+ committee members, and our generous sponsors, would like to say THANK YOU for your continued support and let you know we truly appreciate you taking the time to visit this page.

As always, we’re so grateful for your continuing support of the NFED. Without your kindness and generosity, we would be unable to continue assisting individuals and families affected by ectodermal dysplasia.

We are so proud to say that since the creation of the Halloween Bash, we have raised almost $4 million dollars for the NFED. What an accomplishment! Our goal is to break the $4 million dollar mark by raising an additional $125,000 for the NFED.

Please make a donation to Halloween Bash today. The funds raised through the Halloween Bash helps the NFED host medical conferences, fund research, and provide support for affected individuals and families.
