Community Event to Fight Lyme Disease: New Canaan, CT

A Night at the Barn to Fight Lyme Disease

Hosted by Tracey Limone, Joe Limone, and Michele Svirsky

Join us for a NIGHT AT THE BARN to help fight Lyme Disease!  Live Music, Food Truck, Wine & Beer and Silent Auction

Join us on May 2, 2020 from 6-10PM at the Carriage Barn in New Canaan for a fun night out for a good cause. Help us to raise awareness and fight Lyme Disease.

Lyme Disease has affected our families personally, but it is also rampant in our area. We would not be surprised if you or someone you know has suffered from Lyme Disease. Yet, national funding is low. This is why we are committed to raising awareness and funds to support the cause.

The NIGHT AT THE BARN will include Live Music, Food Truck, Wine & Beer and a Silent Auction (including a week stay at Ameila Island Plantation)

We look forward to seeing you at the Barn. If you cannot make the fundraiser but would still like to donate you may do so via the Register button or send a check to: Stick It To The Ticks 761 New Norwalk Rd New Canaan CT 06840.

You can also contact us at stickit2theticks@gmail.com

Please purchase tickets in advance/$125 per ticket

All proceeds will go to the GLOBAL LYME ALLIANCE.

More Than Lyme Adventures

About the Event:
Or rather, More Than Lyme Adventure 

We’re looking to bring the connections and friendships that we’ve made through our social media platforms, directly to a new city or town, a few times every year…

To form lasting in-person relationships, with new and exciting ways to advocate for our health, all while spreading awareness and raising funds for Lyme Disease and other invisible illnesses.

Through a day-retreat styled gathering, we will be encouraging those of us impacted (including loved ones, friends, or someone interested in being part of the movement), to put our dreams into action, share experiences, goals, ideas, and stories through a wide variety of creative outlets such as:

  • Yoga and meditative practices
  • Writing and storytelling
  • Cooking and sharing meals
  • Painting, ceramics, or other classes and craft-based activities led by in-community artists
  • Holding discussions on topics such as: Daily wellness tips and tricks, getting diagnosed and what to do after, treatment options and doctors, communities to join for support, mental and physical health, diet and exercise, wellness + caring for yourself on a budget, as well as advocating and getting involved on a bigger scale.

This event will be taking place on March 3 and 4 at The Mark, part of The Weller Society.
Location: 101 NE Morris Street. Portland, OR 97212
