Editorial: A Last luau for Lily
MADISON, Wis. — The cause of supporting epilepsy research has had no better friend than Lily, and there has been no better benefit than Lily’s Luau.
For 10 years now, the Luau has been the featured event for Lily’s Fund for Epilepsy Research, established in 2006 by David and Anne Giroux whose daughter Lily has epilepsy. That work goes on, the last luau will be held on Saturday, and the event is expected to go out in style, with more than 700 guests celebrating epilepsy research.
We want to draw your attention to the event and to the more than $1 million in assets accumulated over the last decade, enough to fund another 10 years of research at UW-Madison.
We also want to express our appreciation and respect for David and Anne and Lily for their dedication and commitment to highlighting this often-misunderstood and stigmatized disease. They’ve made a huge difference.
