Fundraising Progress

$65,301 Raised of $100,000 Goal


Dear NFED Family and Friends,

I would like to personally welcome you to our 20th Annual Halloween Bash!

Keith and I, along with Bruce and Alice, and our team of 50+ committee members, 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.

2020 is a landmark year for us – it’s the 20th Anniversary of our Halloween Bash. But it’s also a year that has been difficult for so many of us as we’ve struggled to change our daily lives – especially in New York. I don’t know about you, but I’m glad that our Bash finally gives us a fun reason to wear masks!

As always, we’re grateful for your support of the NFED, an organization that is so important to our family. Without your kindness and generosity, we would be unable to continue assisting individuals and families affected by ectodermal dysplasias.

Thanks to you, we have raised more than $4 million dollars for the NFED since our first bash. Wow! This year, our goal is to raise an additional $100,000.

Please make a donation to our 2020 Halloween Bash today. All funds raised will help the NFED host medical conferences, fund research, promote advocacy, and provide direct support for affected individuals and families.

This event is all online and includes an auction, journal and opportunity to donate. We need silent auction items and sponsors for this year’s Halloween Bash. Will you or your employer be able to help? If so, please download and print the form below and mail it to our office. Let’s work together for all affected families!

With much gratitude,

Ruth and Keith Geismar
Alice and Bruce Geismar
